'I don't think my dad believes in me' sad

FiveGoMadInDorset Tue 30-Jun-15 21:08:57

Yes, already feel sorry for this poor boy

flamingtoaster Tue 30-Jun-15 21:09:16

Poor boy!

Emochild Tue 30-Jun-15 21:09:40

Not surprised social services called round after that!!

The chinese cupping thing - my goodness.

I'm going to be watching it with a delay. Marking place for later.

I quite like the brothers -seem pretty grounded not that i'm jumping to conclusions

ImperialBlether Tue 30-Jun-15 21:21:21

As usual a lot of the parents are barmy.

I wonder whether they'd enter themselves if there was just a Genius competition.

Emochild Tue 30-Jun-15 21:24:22

Holly does not want to be there does she?

'My child doesn't like attention -I know, I'll put her on the tv!'

Poor Holly. She looks terrified

chocomochi Tue 30-Jun-15 21:25:48

Why is Holly putting herself through this? She looks petrified!

Pipbin Tue 30-Jun-15 21:27:41

Please forgive me if I'm wrong but this isn't 'child genius' stuff but 'stuff we can remember'. Just being able to remember stuff doesn't make you a genius.

ImperialBlether Tue 30-Jun-15 21:28:50

I don't know, Pipbin; it's not stuff you could just remember if there was no context. And the Maths questions certainly couldn't be pre-prepared.

DocHollywood Tue 30-Jun-15 21:30:03

Damn! Missed first bit. Only seen a bit of Holly. She doesn't look a very happy child, poor thing hmm

DocHollywood Tue 30-Jun-15 21:31:19

I hate it when they go out in the early rounds if the later rounds are their strengths.

Pipbin Tue 30-Jun-15 21:32:20

Ahh, I've only seen them doing general knowledge questions. I didn't see the other rounds.

In my opinion it should be problem solving and lateral thinking.

DocHollywood Tue 30-Jun-15 21:35:22

Again, poor kids hmm

dementedma Tue 30-Jun-15 21:42:23

Thomas - bloody hell

Emochild Tue 30-Jun-15 21:44:33

Wow -that was impressive!

TheFirstOfHerName Tue 30-Jun-15 21:45:22

Why has she named one of her sons after a green leafy vegetable?

Pipbin Tue 30-Jun-15 21:48:26

I find it interesting that the proportion of non white British children is much higher than in the population as a whole.
