Is it Okay to Help Your Kids with their School-Work?

Parents helping kids with homework

Nowadays, there are projects given our elementary-age and older children that seem a bit big and over-whelming – to mom and dad, that is. Seriously, some of these projects are difficult and in many communities it seems the quality of these completed works are way beyond the capability of the kid that “did it.” Clearly, dad and mom are helping.

What say YOU about parental help with their kid’s school-work? Of course, if it’s help with simple math or reading homework, that seems completely appropriate AS LONG AS mom and dad are NOT doing the work. But, when they have to do a Science Fair project or something artistically out of their ability, is it cool when the parent(s) do it for them?
