Helping with Homework Isn’t So Easy?
Are you smarter than a fifth grader? No, really...
From Daily Mail, a new study finds two out of three parents say they can't help their child with homework . . . because it's too hard.
Half of them say sometimes, they even quickly use Google for help without their kid knowing. And one-third are worried their kid's teachers are judging them over the quality of their kid's homework.
The study also found the 10 school subjects parents struggle with the most . . . eight of which are related to math or science.
The top 10 are: Algebra . . . fractions . . . trigonometry . . . the Pythagorean theorem . . . ratios . . . Roman history . . . long division . . . Civil War history . . . the periodic table of elements . . . and the formation of atoms, protons, and neutrons.
Let's just say I'm glad my son is in the last half of his senior year at college. (Whew!)
