My grade level isn't even doing any turns ins for assignments or assessments this semester for that exact reason. It's not accurate in the least.

Thankfully most of my parents understood when I explained not to help, but I do have a few that just won't step back and now their children barely know anything because they automatically look for an adult instead of thinking for themselves. One more I can tell its such a struggle for but she's been really good at taking a step back.

I think it also helped that I gave parents a list of ways they could help. For example, I said you can help your child recall the story by asking questions like, "what was your favorite part?" or "did you like any pictures?" and for writing, I said that they could help by asking their child about their picture to help develop language skills.
