UGH – that makes me sick!

How is the kid supposed to learn anything and develop a sense of responsibility and accomplishment?

Wow that’s crazy!  I understand helping him go to the library and gather sources but it sounds like she wrote the whole paper!

Oh goodness! Sounds like your coworker needs to take a chill pill and stop doing her sons work for him..

I don’t get to hear a lot of personal convo’s in my office, the people in my group are either extremely busy with work or not here, some of them leave at 3:45 and others get in close to 10:00. I feel like I’m the only one who makes personal calls! Although it’s people calling me about the wedding and I always try to keep it short.

I would let this chick know that her kid is going to end up single, lazy and probably living in her basement when he’s thirty if she doesn’t give him a little breathing room : )

When I was younger my mom would go to the end of the world to make sure I had awesome projects. She would drive me to the library, help me research online, and take me to the store to get all the supplies I wanted/needed. But the project was always 100% written and done by ME (minus using the hot glue gun, etc.).

I work with kids 3.5 hours a day/5 days a week and knowing their parents, that situation doesn’t phase me at all :/

No kidding! Good for the teacher for questioning him! That’s ridiculous! I mean, my parents certainly helped me with our crafty projects, but I did the majority of the work. Writing a paper for your kid is pretty ridiculous though. I’m glad the teacher gave him a B!

woah. my parents never helped with my projects. LOL! They weren’t bad parents or anything, and would help if I really needed it but I had to give it a really big effort before they would budge. That said, by my senior year of high school i was an excellent project-doer. This was all before internet when you had to actually go to the library and use the dewey decimal system and such nonsense.

She really is not helping her child by doing his work for him. He has to learn on his own. It is sad that some parents hurt their kids when they are trying to help them.
