Teacher Makes Sure Dad Will Never Help Kid With Homework Again (PHOTO)

homeworkOK, show of hands: who helps their kid with homework? Come on, 'fess up! A national survey conducted in 2013 found some 60 percent of parents struggle with their kids' homework, which means a whole lot of us are pitching in. Maybe pitching in a little too much. Like this dad who got caught red-handed by his kid's teacher ... and posted her smack-down on Reddit.

Tsk. Tsk. Tsk.

Oh, who are we kidding? It's happened. I'm not one of those moms who does her kid's homework, and I know it shows (see also poorly formed clay models of army ants in the third grade diorama). I do, however, know what it's like when the kid is sitting there whining that they can't figure #10 out and they reeeeeaally need help. Saying no is ... challenging?

But a little word to the wise: staying strong is for the best. Not only can you avoid the red-penned note of derision from your kid's teacher, but you'll be raising a smarter kid in the long run. One who actually knows to go back and look at their vocab list to figure out which word is which.
