"Should Parents Help Kids With Homework"
I think parents should not helptheir kids with homework.
Reason 2: Parents could compromise thehomework grade that reflects onto test.
Evidence: “A groundbreaking studypublished last January by two universityprofessors, called The Broken Compass:Parental Involvement With Children'sEducation, found that kids who gotextensive help from their parents scoredworse on standardized tests than kids whomanaged homework on their own.(Goldstein, "Don't Help Your Kids WithHomework")”
More Evidence: “In an attempt to
show whether the kids of
more-involved parents improved
over time, the researchers indexed
these measures to children’s
academic performance, including
test scores in reading and math.
What they found surprised them.
Most measurable forms of parental
involvement seem to yield few
academic dividends for kids, or
even to backfire—regardless of a
parent’s race, class, or level of
education.('Should Parents Help
Kids With Homework?',20 )”
Reason 1: Parents are not helping kids dohomework but doing their homework.
Evidence: “Once kids
enter middle school,
parental help with
homework can actually
bring test scores down,
an effect could be
caused by the fact that
many parents started
doing all the homework
and telling them all the
right answers for you
and you don’t learn

Reason 3: Helping your kids withhomework just doesn't help.
Evidence:"Do you review your daughter’s
homework every night? Robinson and
Harris’s data, published in The Broken
Compass: Parental Involvement With
Children’s Education, show that this won’t
help her score higher on standardized
tests."(Goldstein, Don't Help Your Kids With
More evidence: "Many educators agree thatif students can't do the homework that'sassigned, they should let the teacher knowso they can get the extra help they need.And yes, kids may be busy, but part ofgrowing up is learning to balanceextracurricular activities with the demands ofschoolwork."("Should Parents Help TheirKids With Homework?", 20)
Counter argument: You may say that it is
okay for parents to check their kids
Well that is just as bad! Will the teachercheck your test, your STAAR test, yourstandardized test? No! So even if you askfor your parents to check your homeworkjust know it will not help it will hurt.
