No I'm pretty sure he's trying to tell you it sounds like you've never been around kids in your life.
Yeah it definitely sounds like he does not have much experience.
At the same time though if he does have some experience that had led to such a different opinion I would love to hear it. I think I am excellent at my job, it is the only thing I have ever felt I was great at, but there is no such thing as an expert because as the saying goes, children are like snowflakes.
Perhaps one day I see a similar situation and can use the information to help a kid. That to me would be far more meaningful than changing his mind.
