doesn’t allow her to play video games, and as for soccer—forget it.” That evening, Mama took Papa aside. “My dear,” she said, “I’m just as disappointed in Brother’s report card as you are, but in a way we’re almost as much to blame as Brother.” “We are?” said Papa. “That’s right,” said Mama. “There’s more to being a parent than cheering at soccer games. We should have been checking on his work.” “What do you think we should do?” asked Papa. “I think he’s having a hard time with fractions and
