Lucky Parents?

I just heard a commercial on the radio that asked, "Would you like to be one of those lucky parents whose children bring home good grades?" It was for some company promising that your kids could get good grades.

Let me get this straight, you think that it's LUCKY when someone's children get good grades? I mean yeah, there's some luck when genetics come into play, but I hardly think that luck is the major factor involved when it comes to good grades. Maybe if some of these parents got off their butts and parented the kids instead of hoping the school will take care of it for them we'd be in a little better position all around.

Or maybe it's just luck. Heck, that cinches it for me - I'm just going to close my eyes and hope for the best with Ellie and Matthew.

I've heard that commercial too and it just burns my butter. My 8 year old comes home with loads of homework that he actually gets done every night. Then I take time out of making dinner, washing kids and finishing up work (I work from home) to answer his questions and correct his work. What he's doing is hard work, perseverance, and parental involvement, no luck involved.
