Other than few exceptional children, most five and six year olds would hardly understand the concept of a project, paint or draw or make a model. But every child would want his project to the best in class as much as their parents' desire. So, it is actually the parents who set the trend by doing the project for their child. Unfortunately, teachers also demand a clean work for the display board. Many times an otherwise good performing child gets upset on not finding his or her project among the best. This is only because in this case, the child did it himself which perhaps pales out in front of the others done by the parents. It is important that parents help but should not do the entire project themselves.
