Renegade Parents Teach Old Math on the Sly

NEW YORK (AP) — On an occasional evening at the kitchen table in Brooklyn, N.Y., Victoria Morey has been known to sit down with her 9-year-old son and do something she's not supposed to.

"I am a rebel," confesses this mother of two. And just what is this subversive act in which Morey engages — with a child, yet?

Long division.

The idea of a parent tutoring child in reading, math or science is nothing new.

Teaching a child is not a renegade activity but a fulfillment of one's parental obligation to help the child develop into a capable, independent adult.
