Homework With Friends Can Be Fun, Learns The Kid

Actual site where group homework with friends was attempted.
As a helicopter parent I expect the moment my child is left alone all hell will break loose. And I mean this in the best way possible.

So when the 12-year-old hung out with some friends after school I had visions of pandemonium, of running around screaming (the kid, not me), even though the kid is mostly polite and well-behaved in public.

Imagine my surprise when the kid was seated at a table with some friends with their books spread out before them, all of them chatting amicably. I basically had to invent some pretense to sound all fatherly. Jeez. The hoops I have to jump through.

Anyway, we drove home and I became aware of a vague notion that some paradigm shift had occurred and I was the last to know.
