  • I think in high school kids still need a parent to ask them if they have done their homework (of course, this depends on the kid). But I don't think parents should be regularly helping with homework that late. Even junior high seems a bit old for that.

  • No, I think we must be vigilant all years in school for our kids.  I think as they get older there are different levels of checking though.  Knowing when to back off and let them handles certain things is important but they still need us even though they think 'they don't' lol

  • I cannot think of a time. well maybe when they are in college, but I'm sure I will still call and ask them occasionally. :)

  • It depends on the kid. My oldest was very good at doing his high school homework on his own and I did not have to ask about it. My youngest needed more help and we often did homework together. Just a difference in kids.

  • EVEN THOUGH MY DAUGHTER HAS BEEN ON THE HONOR ROLL SINCE SHE'S BEEN IN SCHOOL, I STILL CHECK HER HOMEWORK
