"I think it was your daughter's assignment, she wanted to leave it blank. If my daughter, that's it...done deal, she did her assignment. Why do parents want to do their kid's work? :D"

""Has to" is maybe a bit strong.  I'm sure she could leave it blank and it wouldn't be a big deal since it's not a graded assignment, just an info sheet for the teacher to get to know them.  I just don't like…"

"She HAS to write something about religion? Is that even legal in a public school (assuming that's what it is)? 1. Love yourself. 2. Love your neighbor as yourself. 3. Question everything."
