Obama Urges Parental Responsibility
From Newsvine, a story about how Obama's been injecting a bit of "tough talk" into speeches given on the economy and education to crowds at packed high school gyms. He's not saying anything earth shattering, just that a little common sense would go along way:
"You should meet with the teacher and find out what the homework is and help that child with the homework. And if you don't know how to do the homework, don't be embarrassed, find someone to help you."
"Fathers, be fathers," he added. "Be a part of your child's life. Be a part of your child's life and try to make them proud.
"And the last thing is, if your child is misbehaving at school don't curse out the teacher. You know who you are. It's not the teacher's fault that your child is misbehaving. That's some home training."
