If it was a 5000 word assignment, then yeah, it should've been looked over and double checked a few times. But FYL for having such an intrusive mom. If it makes you feel any better, my mom once logged onto our family computer and proceeded to 'clear up disk space' by deleting 60% of my files, including a term paper because she'd asked me to do it a few weeks ago. There's no rules basically for being a parent, but there are ways to do it wrong.
She could have double checked it 10 times in the days prior to needing to turn it in, only to have her mom add the paragraph afterward. After all, how many times do you recheck your work. And if you aren't stupid, you don't need to recheck it in the days before its due because you've already done so
Omg who in the world would do such a thing... I would give my mom a sound tounge lashing if she ever tried to do something on that scale. Its your work, not hers. I say you walk around correcting her work for the next month, see how she likes it
If you're old enough to be issued a 5000 word assignment, aren't you also old enough to do it without mum helping?
fyl. your mom should let you make your own mistakes not risk your grade to prove her point. Yes she is correct that you should in fact always give your work one last look but that is your paper and your grade she messed with. I hope the teacher had a good sense of humor and didn't fail you because of it.
He never said she helped him, he said she wrote a paragraph about him needing to pay more attention without his knowledge. Which, btw, is pretty fucked up. His grade will probably suffer for it, and he obviously put at least SOME effort into the paper, since it was 5000 words. And honestly, how many of you would got back and read through a 5000 word paper that you JUST WROTE? I'm guessing very few.
