Madison is going to be ten years old in a month and a half, and going into junior high in the fall (hate that my school district does that with them so young on the bus with 8th graders)...my question is even though I'm a teacher, what age should parents stop checking homework totally and completely?
By this I mean, right now we check all of her homework. If we find errors, we have her correct it. At what point do we just check to make sure it's done and hold her responsible for if it's right? Is there a cut off age? Clearly when the questions start getting harder on our memory banks would be an easy out! LOL I don't want her or Lincoln to reach high school and think like many of my students that homework doesn't matter because my parents don't check anyway. I don't think I'll ever stop checking, but how much to check, now that's the question. Thoughts on this...
