Be truthful: Did you check your kids homework every night?
The girl next to me in junior high history class always had a perfect paper. Kathy also had the most anal handwriting I had ever seen. It came as a shocker when she told me her mother always checked her work before she turned it in. In other words, her mother made her be perfect.
She dressed in perfect hand-sewn outfits, and had perfect hair that rolled into a long page-boy. I had seen her mom, and she looked perfect too.
How much homework checking is okay? And did you sit down with your kids and help them, or have them work independently?
