My five year olds have recently been asking me to itch their backs.

I cut them some slack because its not unusual for little kids to mix up words.

But it bugs me when adults do it.

+1. "Itch" for "scratch" is as bad as "learn" for "teach".

I have almost resigned myself to "we should have went" but not this, yet.

On that same note, for a long time I've maintained that you're not a teacher unless the student is learning. Otherwise, you're an instructor.

And true teachers are also continuing to learn.
