I’m sitting in the computer lab, avoiding my statistics homework. There’s a kid in here doing some homework for one of his classes. The weird thing is that his parents are here too, helping him do it. Both parents. It’s like a committee on how to best do the assignment (which is relatively simple and the student in question seems capable of doing). They’ve printed out the assignment a couple of times and one parent or another has had suggestions of how to improve the results.
This is just weird.
Am I the only one who would feel awkward with parents taking such an active role in these aspects of life? Cause I can’t imagine having either one of my parents showing up to school – no matter how much free time they may have – and helping me do homework assignments.
I never understood, the frequency. Uh huh.
