Cheating for Your Child

Would You Cheat For Your Child?

There are parents who prepare science projects for their children, teachers that pass their answer keys off to their own kids to give them an edge and generations of moms and dads who correct their youngster's homework before they turn it in. At what point does one draw the line between "helping" and cheating? A Pennsylvania mother who worked as the secretary at her daughter's high school changed the child's grades and test scores to improve her class standing. She now faces criminal charges. One report said:
McNeal was charged with 29 counts of unlawful use of a computer and 29 counts of tampering with public records. Each count is a third-degree felony punishable by a maximum of seven years in prison and a $15,000 fine.

While this is an extreme case, do you think it's ever alright to cheat for your child?
