Lauren currently has an F in reading thanks to a few missed homework assignments. 

Me: I mean, I don’t get it, Lauren. You love to read. You read all the time at home.

Lauren: Yeah, but, mom, reading isn’t like.. just reading. You have to do all this comprehend stuff, too.

Me: Comprehension. And, yeah, she has to make sure you understand what you’re reading.

Lauren: She’s always asking all these questions and telling us what to do. And we have to listen to her all the time. You know I hate that.  I mean, I thought it was reading class, but we don’t even read that much.

Me: I’ve got news for you. For the rest of your life people are going to tell you what to do.

Lauren: We’ll see about that.
