That doesn't bother me. People are just trying to make small talk and it's their way of asking the kid's age. No big. I do, however, not like when they start quizzing my kids once they learn that we homeschool. That's not just making small talk and never happens to schooled kids. That's them trying to assess my kids' knowledge so they can judge them for their lack of it or if it's incomplete. That is not nice.
