I was helping my 4rth grader do his math homework last night. He made a couple of mistakes and when I tried to correct him he refused and insisted that this is how it should be done. So I let him do it the way he wants it and I warned him that there will be consequences since he did not want to take the time to read the instructions. My husband on the other hand kept arguing with me that I should not allow him to do what he wants. It is a graded homework. But he has a lot of good grades so allowing him to make mistakes and learn from them is to me more important than scoring an A. What would you do?
