"Then, who taught you? who attended to you? Without a governess, you must have been neglected."
Elizabeth admits some neglect, but doesn't seem too concerned about it. Good grief - you don't leave the education of your children up to your children. I can well see Kitty and Lydia "choosing to be idle" in their education which leads us in a direct line to their being "two of the silliest girls in the country." I'm with Lady Catherine here (much as it pains me to say it!); it is an appalling neglect and a condemnation of the Bennets' parenting skills.
What do you think? Do you side with Lady Catherine or Mr. and Mrs. Bennet?
