She even uses the time to do her homework. Third grade. She was working on spelling and vocabulary - and asked everyone in the store about every word. She didn't know ANY of them. After helping her use those words for about three minutes, I realize I'm doing this kid's homework! (I reserve that right only for my own kids, thank you.) I told her to dig out a dictionary and look up the words. She looked at me like I was speaking Chinese. And so did her mom.

    I'm sure this is pretty common. I understand how it's just easier to do it for the kid rather that teaching them how to research and such. I do think "helping" kids with homework is great. But what a disservice to our kids. And to think they are the generation who will be responsible for taking care of us in our golden years.

    My kids used to say "how can I look up how to spell it if I don't know how to spell it"?
    I always have a dictionary at my elbow when I'm reading or writing.
