It could happen around the time of the science fair. Or when something's worth almost half of a class grade. Or when you feel sorry for them.
We're talking about parent help on schoolwork. Sometimes students bring in these really elaborate projects, or perfectly poised prose on their presentation.
As a teacher, can't help but wonder if little Johnny or Jane got some grown-up help on their projects. Of course you are not at the student's house when it all comes together. But you have suspicions. Why did the parent feel the need to do so much work? And what does the student really learn from all this extra help?
We want to ask you:
How much is too much involvement in your child's school project?
Let other moms know what your experience has been in the comment box below. It will be interesting to see how much you all have come across this as parents, if at all.
