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!
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 :)
well trick her into writing a note in your teachers handwriting that says HI AS TEACHER WE HAVE A PARENT book report help you as parents must help your child with their book report thank you sincerely(your teacher's name) and she will help you
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..
