It is the responsibility of parents to foster good and godly character in their kids. Today the temptation to cheat often comes into conflict with the character of high schoolers.
Parents need to realize that their teen may cheat in school and take steps to help them fight this temptation. While cheating may be a new normal in high school, this does not mean that your teen needs to participate.
How To Identify Warning Signs that Your Teen May Cheat in School
Most parents tend to be happy when their kids do well in school. You have probably seen stickers on cars that proudly celebrate children’s academic achievements. Maybe you even have one of those stickers.
While It may feel like I’m trying to rain on your parade, I think that I should inform parents about an unfortunate statistic. Livescience.com reports that 80 to 90 percent of high school students cheat in school. I’m not suggesting that you should start throwing out wild accusations, but before you boast too much about your child’s academic achievements, maybe ask yourself the following questions:
- Does my teen spend adequate time studying?
- Is there anything that indicates that my teen cheats on his or her social media pages?
- Do I actually see my teen doing school work at home?
- Does he or she always ask to do homework at the house of a classmate?
And remember, you can bring up this topic with your teen. Just ask how they handle this issue and if they have been falling into the temptation to cheat.
