Should parents manage their high school students school work, or should it be the student's job?
I have 5 children, but my oldest is only four, so I don't have personal experience with this. Of course I know young children need guidance. But IMO, by high school teenagers should be responsible for doing their homework, studying, etc. In four short years they will be in college. Mom and dad can't be over their shoulder forcing them to go to class, do their homework, and study.
My sister and I were discussing this today. She has a teenager that she micromanages. Yes, she has a 3.8 GPA, is an amazing 3 sport athlete, does lots of community service, etc. But at this point I think it should be up to her, or else she'll make it to college and won't know what to do with herself!
Just curios, what do you all think?
