Seems to come up with the same answer for each of my four children who are all very different - all musical geniuses apparently! :)------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Thanks for telling me! We have corrected the script! MM

This is a scam. It doesn't matter which way you answer it will always give you the result that your child is a musical genius. Why is this so:) ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Sorry about that. I need to have the webmaster look at this! Thank you for bringing our attention to the problem! MM
