We stayed up late last night helping our sixth grader finish up a project that’s due today. I warned my son earlier in the week not to wait until the last minute but apparently he has inherited my ability to procrastinate like the dickens. I guess I can’t blame the kid since I’m the king of all procrastinators but it would be nice if he could nip this habit in the bud before it’s too late. As with most parents, we want to see our children succeed in school so we couldn’t just allow him to do a half-assed job on the project. So last night, we sat around the kitchen table and helped him complete his project until a little past midnight. This is not a good way to start off his school year. I’m all for helping kids with their school work but I’m NOT going to spend the whole night DOING the work for them!!
