How Does One Not Help The Kid With Homework?

Proper guidance is essential for the kid to grow up as whack as the parents.
At the beginning of the year the teachers told us that we shouldn't help the kids do their homework. The reason being that the assignments would be a reflection of how well the kid understood the classroom material.

If the kids have a question how can I not answer it?

I feel a great compulsion to help because I can answer the question. The daughter is in sixth grade and I can still feel like a renaissance man, providing answers to questions of math, science, and humanities.

In a few short months I doubt I will be able to answer anything except the softball questions the kid will throw to me as a form of charity:"Dad, tell me what it was like in the 1980's."

Best of times, worst of times!
