6 year old crying because she hasn't used enough subordinating conjunctions

Message I just received:
"My 6-year-old daughter was crying at bedtime tonight, utterly inconsolable. When I asked her what was wrong, she said "Mummy, I tried really hard to write a whole page in English today, but it wasn't good enough because I didn't have enough subordinating conjunctions." 6 years old. This breaks my heart as both a mother and a primary school teacher myself."
