Signs your child may be cheating
How can you determine whether your child's grades are earned--or "borrowed"? Here's what to watch for.
He brings home little or no homework
If your child tells you he doesn't get any or claims that he does it all in study hall, he may not be working on his own.
She aces her tests without studying
While some children are capable of breezing through middle school, most need prep time in order to get top grades.
He relies on the computer
The Internet makes it easier than ever for kids to swap assignments or to copy material from Websites. Talk to your child about the difference between doing research online and outright plagiarism.
