If the story is true, in all bluntness , you need to improve on your parenting. You are talking too much work stuff in front of your kid. When with the kid, don’t talk work just like you don’t talk about your kid all the time at work.

Well, I don’t consult on Thursday nights, but put on my hat yesterday. Told her that Santa has to make toys for nearly 2 Billion kids. So that takes thought, planning, and time. Her next question was that she and her friends have not yet told Santa what they want this year - so what is he making. Exhausted, I ushered her to bed with a promise of carrying on this conversation later.
@P1, we don’t talk work with our kid. Having said that both my wife and I are in consulting. She works for a local outfit. So the kid knows some words.
@E3, The kids have apparently been talking about job losses and outsourcing and stuff. One of her friend’s dad lost his job. The entire unit was sent to an offshore vendor.
