Hi Vanessa,

First, look at the reason why your mother is not helping you with your book report...is she really busy? Is she willing to give you some support but wants to be sure you do the main part yourself?

Here is what would be really good, it is what I did with my god daughter:
Why don't you and your mother read the book together, out loud? Then, discuss it together...and while you are talking about the book, make notes on what you think are the most interesting or important points.

Then you can assemble your notes into a well-written report. Show that to your mother, to see if she has time to help you with some final touches in spelling, grammar, and proof-reading.

You will learn a lot, and I bet you will get a good grade!

I'm not too lucky, since I have to do book reports in French, and neither of my parents can speak it. My young sibling speaks it, but that doesn't help too much. Oh well, life.

Perhaps her point is that it is your report and therefore it is essential that you actually do it yourself.

What a concept! Homework actually done by the student it's assigned to! My kids know I'll proofread for spelling, punctuation, & grammar, unless that's not allowed, but actual content has to be their own.

Yes. To this day my kids hate it when they ask how to spell something and I say, try spelling it.

Mothers help their kids in book reports. But don't let your mom do it all for you. If she's not busy, tell her "Mom, my teacher said you seem very good about book reports. I answered "of course'".

Maybe she can't help you as she hasent read the book herself ? Maybe she's too busy? Maybe you could win her over by suggesting that she just looks over a draft copy which you do by yourself - then it may open a useful discussion between you both and help you finish your report on your own. Good luck :)

Just do not hide behind the bushes and just go straight to her and ask to the point. It never hurts to ask someone. you risk 100% if you do not ask someone and always remember that and also that no question is dumb. In life, you have to ask these questions to get ahead in things of what you are doing. Trying to better yourself and ect..
