Do you do your kids homework for them?

I was just by the school. Blue Valley. Great schools. I was looking at the bulletin board with kids projects on the wall. They had to do timelines of their lives so far. A whole 7 years. It was interesting to see which ones were clearly done by the parents and the which ones by the kids themselves.

Why do they do their kids work for them? Is that helping the kids? Are they really showing off for their own kids? My kid's was great and done by herself of course. In fact we told her we had some ideas for her but she told us she knew exactly what she wanted to do. Interesting to see what was important to her over 7 years.

Hey mom and dad, why don't you let the kids do their own work?
