Way late to this, but just stop...


Your kids are likely my version of helpless handraisers in the classroom. Especially seventh grade, which is the last grade before stuff starts counting (assuming they aren't in Algebra I).

They're going to have to figure it out themselves at some point. Do it now. You don't want the breakdown to happen in 10th or 11th grade.

With my oldest daughter (who is in college now), the best thing I ever did was give up on helping her with math homework. It just made me mad and she never felt the need to actually take on her own responsibility. When I just stopped, she used her own network just like all the other kids who don't have teachers or family members on call to tutor. Way better all around.
