Confession: I did my daughter's homework for her.

Posted by   + Show Post

My daughter, 5th grader, had a shit ton of homework tonight.

She worked on it non-stop from the time she got home until bedtime, with short breaks and dinner in between. She wasn't fooling around, and I could see her getting stressed and anxious.

Her last worksheet had 5 unfinished math problems left, so I finished them after she went to bed. That shit was hard! It's been quite a long time since I was a student and I guess I am NOT smarter than a 5th grader! ;)

I have a degree in math and my kids always tried to get me to do their calculus homework.  I told them no way...i did my time in hell. :)

Quoting Kerannmer:

Probably, lol. I suck at math (this was fractions, so not too bad), but at least it was me and not my husband (he's even worse!). :)

Watch you get her a "D" on her math homework...

Thanks. We're carrying on a tradition passed on from my husband's family.


Quoting BelleVernonGirl:

Fuck um...live your life for you and your fam not other ppl...have fun on your vacation!!!!

 

Quoting Kerannmer:

 I'm not, but other moms sure are! Yikes, lol. They'd really freak if they knew my husband and I were taking her out of school for a week to go skiing. Now I'm really in for shit. Oh nooooooo! ;)

 

Quoting BelleVernonGirl:

I think everyone has done this...don't sweat it...

I still, to this day, have NO IDEA how I passed calculus. I think the teacher may have had me mixed up with someone else, lol.

Why does logic have to be applied to everything? I'm not sweating it, it's small stuff. I'm sure I didn't fuck up her entire future with 5 little 5th grade math problems, lol. 


Quoting Anonymous:

So if they'll get marked wrong or she'll have to do them anyway, WHY did you do them?!

Were you bored?

There is absolutely no logic to this scenario.

Quoting Kerannmer:

No, she won't get shit. If I thought it would start a shitstorm, or if she'd get in trouble, or whatever, I wouldn't have done it. The most that will happen is that they'll be marked wrong or she'll redo them in lunch study. I don't think I'm going to win Mom-of-the-Year for this one, but it hardly makes a case for such a dramatic response. 

 

Quoting Anonymous:

so you CHEATED for your daughter without her knowledge AND are sending a note to school to admit to it?!

Why bother doing the problems at all?  Why not just write a note saying your daughter worked X hours on homework and just couldn't finish?

Now SHE's going to get shit for YOU doing her work AND not finishing it.

Way to go, mom.

Quoting Kerannmer:

I stuck a post-it to the sheet letting her teacher know, lol; it's also obvious by the completely different handwriting. Hey, it's good practice for me, right? Gotta keep this old mind SHARP! ;)

would be freakin hysterical if you got them all wrong.

Quoting Kerannmer:

Because she did the previous 25 problems. I'm not worried.  

 

Quoting Anonymous:

So how can you know for sure SHE knew how to do the problems on her own, since you did them for her?

 

 

 

I did this once after my kid missed several days and he got a ton of home work, it was pages and pages of the same type of math, I made sure he knew what he was doing, and did the same thing, was it wrong of me? very.  I think though when a kid has to miss several days due to illness that  abbrevated lessons should be used so the kid does't stress themselves out playing catch up.

That is so cute!  At least they are learning responsibility.
