Do you make them erase and correct it or just let them take it in as is?
My son had to write his spelling words 2x a piece and put them in alphabetical order. After he was done, he realized that he skipped 3 of the words. So he just went back ,wrote in the words,drawing lines to them and it looks very sloppy.
Now, its in my neat instinct here to make him erase it and do it properly.I said it once very calmly that this is what I thought he should do.But he has copped an attitude and said "ITS FINE,MA".
Shall I just let him take that mess in or make him change it?
I did give him the choice(and this is a change for me because normally I would have made him change it).
I told him that I'd like him to take pride in his work and turn it in neatly.But he's in 4th grade now and I don't want to hold his hand anymore through homework, he has to make these decisions on his own.
