    Yes, I teach similes and metaphors in 3rd grade. In fact, we've talked about them since the beginning of the year. My kids will usually shout out SIMILE or METAPHOR when I'm reading a story out loud, so I know they have the concept now. As far as the parent, it sounds like the child just got tired and it upset the parent. I've had similar things happen before. I would just explain that you'll continue to go over similes and metaphors, and hopefully with more practice the child will understand it better. I think you spent enough time on it before independent practice, but some children just need more practice before grasping it well.
