According to some researchers, the best way for your kid to get an A is to get out of their way. Parental involvement, they say, is overrated. But that flies in the face of what has been commonly understood: that parental involvement is key to a child's academic success. How can helping with their homework or reading to them have a negative effect? Monday on The Sound of Ideas we'll hear about when parental involvement is a bad thing, and why some people just don't buy that. Hosted by Ida Lieszkovsky.
