You may or may not have noticed from previous posts that I feel strongly a student's school work should be his or her own.
I've sent projects home with students to redo when it's clear Mom or Dad did most of the work. I can't stand how an activity meant to teach a child becomes a competition between the parents to see who can do the most elaborate thing.
My son has to make a rocket for school. He's been talking to his dad all week about how to make it.
As we finished dinner my husband said, "I have get working on my rocket for school tomorrow."
I am so annoyed. My own husband is one of the competitive parents that drive me nuts.
