Why You Should Stop Helping your Kids with Homework
Why You Should Stop Helping your Kids with Homework
If you think you’re leading your child to success by helping them with their homework, think again. Two researchers have found that parents who help their kids with classwork can actually hurt their academic achievement. “We need to do away with the assumption that anything parents do will help. That assumes that parents have all the answers, and parents do not have all the answers,” Angel L. Harris, one of the scholars, says. One high school teacher says the study results make sense. Vicki Davis says she sees families over-indulge their kids and render them helpless, including writing papers and taking charge of big projects.
