Step Away from the Algebra

Don’t do your kid’s homework. Try not to even help them that much. It’s better for their development. And it’s better for you not to have to relive your school years. That seems like sensible advice. Until all the other parents in the school start helping their kids on their homework. That’s when you’ll be tempted. But still, really, don’t. (For me, it was easy not to offer too much assistance, until my son asked for help writing some blog headlines.)
