OVIATT ELEMENTARY By Dr. Laura Sivadge Preschool-lst Grade Principal and Rodney Martinez 2nd-3rd Grade Principal CHEATING Studies have found that most children have cheated, or thought about cheating, on schoolwork: While schools battle this issue, there are two important things par- ents can do to help. First, from the time children are very young, parents must em- phasize and reward honest behavior. Second, parents must make sure that their chil- dren know that cheating will not be tolerated at home or at school. Here are some more ways parents can stop children from cheating. Stop schoolwork-related cheating by: Monitoring writing projects. Plagiarism - PaSsing off others' words or ideas as your own - used to mean copying a few lines or paragraphs from an encyclopedia. Today, with'the help of the Internet, children can steal entire essays and research papers. Read your children's assignments before they turn them in. If the writing doesn't "sound" like theirs, talk with them about how they came up with the ideas. If necessary, explain that plagiarism is a serious form of stealing that an result in fail- ing grades or even expulsion. Believing the teacher. Teachers do not make accusations of cheating lightly. If the teacher says that your child was cheating, avoid getting defensive. First, get the facts. Then, if necessary, set up a meeting with everyone involved. Finally, establish conse- quences both for the specific incident and for any "repeat performances." Fighting peer pressure. Peer pressure can be difficult to handle. Children may have a hard time rebuking a friend who asks to copy homework or peek at test an- swers. Remind your children that it is OK to say "no"to their'friends. Let them use you as an excuse: "Sorry. My parents would be furious if I let you see my home- work." Allowing your children to do their own work. Giving your child a little guidance about a school project is fine. Doing even a small bit of the work for them is cheating. You know it. Your child knows it. And so does the teacher. Battle other kinds of cheating by: Downplaying winning. Children love to win and sometimes will do anything, including cheating, to achieve victory. Emphasize the reason for playing games or competing in sports is to have fun - win or lose. If you see or overhear them cheating, stop the game immediately and remind them of this. Teach them that any victory won by cheating is meaningless. Prohibiting pirating. Not only is it dishonest to download music or copy com- puter games without paying for them, you and your child may face criminal charges and financial penalties for doing so. Instead, steer them toward the pay-for-play sites. Sharing stories. When you read an article in a magazine or newspaper about an honest act - perhaps someone turning in a wallet full of money - share it with your children and talk about how important it is to resist the temptation to keep some- thing that is not theirs. Finally, scrutinize your own behavior. If they see you Using office supplies brought home from work, overhear you talking about subtle ways to cheat on your income taxes, or witness you calling in sick when you are not, they will believe that cheating is OK. If silence is golden, then speech is platinum. It spreads wisdom, dispels igno- rance, ventilates grievances, stimulates curiosity, lightens the spirits and lessens the fundamental loneliness of the soul. -Jan Struther ORDER BEFORE MAY 10th!
