Is your kid “aggressively schooled”?

Thursday, April 9th, 2009

More on the “who’s to blame—parents or teachers?” debate. This from Dr. Melissa Clouthier, a chiropractor who blogs “with children literally sitting on my head”:

SCHOOLHOUSE OF BLUES: Now with arrows!


Slow parenting might be a new trend, though I’m dubious. Aggressive, strung-out parenting seems to be the norm. Kids have their extra-curricular activities and then they come home…where they are the victims of aggressive schooling.

“All the parents complain about aggressive schooling and then, they comply. Their kids come home with projects beyond their ability and the parents are forced to “help” or else the child will be consigned to B+ status….By making every piece of homework a little too difficult and a must-check and sign by parents, teachers off-load responsibility. If the kid is uneducated, it’s not the teacher’s fault, the parents just don’t care enough and aren’t involved.”
