(I assume this should go in IMHO. I will be interested to find out why it shouldn’t, if that happens:).)
A general question for all of you: Who taught you how to read and write? For me, it was definitely my mother. I often would much rather be playing, as a small child. But she was always the one who took me aside, and said, No, this is much more important.
I guess for the rest of you, if could be your father, a teacher, a sibling. My adopted cousin was purportedly self-taught, if you can believe that. And tragically, some people never had someone who took the time. And so they are functionally illiterate.
Sad. But for the rest of you: Who taught you?
