Scenario 2: Your child comes home from school with an
assignment sheet for a school project. He / she is very excited about the
project and begins work immediately, doing research on the Internet and
gathering materials. You read over the assignment sheet and notice that your
child is not including all of the required items in the project, and you have
some ideas for how to improve the quality of the presentation. You recently
read an article in a parenting magazine about the importance of a child developing
responsibility for his/ her own learning. You recall the many ways in which
your parents took over your school projects. You, on the other hand, want to
encourage your childs confidence in his / her ability to complete a project
independently. The next day, you are at the grocery store when you see a parent
of a student in your childs class. That parent has spent over $30 in supplies
for the science project and is taking a day off of work to put the pieces of
the project together.
