"I kinda think that if you don't hate school as a kid there's probably something wrong with you..."
Uh at 7-8 I don't think most kids hate school that much. I also think there is a difference between boredom and a desire for freedom from the confines of a desk and what how's life is describing his son's reaction to be which strikes me as something much more profoundly unhappy.

On weekends, he starts complaining as early as Saturday afternoon that "the weekend is almost over" because he dreads going back to school so much.
Still does this, even this past weekend which led into the last week of school: half days, field day, assemblies, etc. Thank god we've got another year in the bag, I guess.
