Not to mention that as young students, the kids are the ones who have had English and Writing classes recently. Parents, by in large, would not have had those tricky classes in not less than 18 years. What makes the parents think that they can out-wright their kids anyway! Have a little faith in your children. And as the quoted fella said above, knowing you were successful for who you are (or what you wrote) is better than not knowing if you were really chosen for yourself or your mothers essay.

A lot of people don’t have the skills to write their own essays, anyway these days. America has gotten so dumbed-down it’s a shame. The whole college application/entrance process has become a strategy game for the rich to win.
