Funny when students tell us what we can’t do when we are, in fact, doing it.

I love when smart students talk to you like they’re grown-ups. They’re so cute when they try to act like adults.

Parent Involvement in Homework

Untitled

Studies generally indicate that parent involvement in a child’s schoolwork is a factor which usually helps the child to be successful. Sometimes, though, parents can be a bit too involved. I have sometimes wondered if certain children had any input into their homework at all when their parents “help” them. Like when you get a brilliant project laminated in full color completed on┬áthe computer and when you take your students to the computer lab, the student has forgotten how to log onto the computer at all. Just like a soap opera when a main character has had an accident and suffered from “amnesia…” Of course parents should help their children. Parents should not, however, do the homework for them. As a parent, I know that the line between “helping” and “doing the whole thing yourself because it’s too hard to explain it and my kid just doesn’t get it at all” is thin, but we must let our children learn their lessons in life!
