Have you considered how the temptation to cheat may be affecting your child at school? Do you typically dismiss cheating as a struggle for your student because he or she is generally a good and moral kid?
Well, you may be underestimating how many students cheat in school. This practice is more common than you may think, and often, the more commonplace a sin is, the easier it is to fall into temptation.
How To Recognize Indicators That Students Cheat in School
When students bring home an outstanding report card, parents tend to be very proud. We are all familiar with those parents that proudly display a bumper sticker that declares their student’s academic achievements. You may even have one of those stickers on your car. Though I risk being called a wet blanket, I feel like I need to inform parents of an unfortunate fact: A large number of high school students cheat. Livescience.com reports that the number could be 80% or more among high schoolers these days. Parents may need to start asking themselves a few questions about their children’s academic achievements before picking out a free spot on their car’s bumper. Some good questions to ponder include:
- When does my child study?
- Does my child put in the work to achieve the grades he makes?
- Do I see my child doing school work at home?
- Does my child seem to do all her homework and studying at a classmate’s house?
- Does anything on my child’s social media pages indicate that he is cheating in school?
If you are concerned about cheating, it is always an option to simply ask your child if cheating is a issue or temptation in his or her life.
