My kids come to my office to work on projects

Guest post written by Derick Burks

The first time I suggested that my teenaged son come to my office to work on a paper he was writing it seemed like a good enough idea. The internet at the house was really slow and so I suggested he come to my office to use our fast internet from He rode the bus over after school and got to work on my laptop while I worked on my desktop. Ever few minutes he would get up from the computer and pace around the room and fidget. It was the most distracting thing on Earth. No wonder the kid can never finish any homework within a decent amount of time. He spends all of his quiet time pacing the floor and not doing any actual work. I asked him if he needed help and he practically wanted me to write the paper for him. I don’t even know why he asks me things like that when he knows good and well that I am no pushover. He should write his own paper and get his own grade!
