A Little Artist Training...

Sorry... no time to paint a posting... I was editing son's history report... and solving his drawing dilemma... he needed to draw the Old State House in beautiful Boston... He said "I can't"... I said then trace it... and... voila...


Of course... he waited until the last minute... so I had NOTHING to post... so here I am at 1:46am using his work... THANK YOU, my darling son!
Can you relate? Help your kids with projects? Ever had your parents help you with projects?

Of course I helped my daughter. I think parents do all the big assignments or help greatly anyway. My mother was a teacher and used to guide me but would always make me do them myself Arghh!!!

Of course I think your son's final project is a masterpiece. Hope you get some sleep and you both get an A on this project. It would be well deserved!!!

Yes I think all parents help their kids. I think Teachers do it so the parents will get involved with their kids schooling. Sounds good anyway. :)) You helped but he did. Good job too.

Well Fifi,

What child doesn't say he "can't" do it? My son, use to say "I can't draw". Now, when a child says "he can't do something" it is usually because they have either waited until the last minute to finish in time or they are hoping a little "feel sorry for me" will get you to do the majority of it for them. I think you handled it magnificently Fifi! Just the right amount of help with the majority of the project being completed by him. Great Job!! (My opinion)

What a great finished product! My six year old wants to do everything all by himself, so far....

As we the parents we have the same problems and difficulties with our children.
