Cheating - Parent 2



Your child is participating in classroom activities focused on learning how to identify cheating behavior and how to respond to someone that may ask them to cheat.

Definition: Cheating means that you are not following rules because you want to get ahead or get credit for not doing the work yourself. Cheating is hurtful to others as it makes you untrustworthy and dishonest to peers, classmates and adults.

We would love for you to keep the discussion going at home! Here are just a few ideas to help get the conversation started:

  • Have you ever cheated before? If so, why?
  • Has anyone ever cheated you?
  • How do you feel about cheating?
  • How can you prevent cheating?


Write about a situation in which you would find it hard not to cheat. What makes it hard not to cheat in this situation?
