Helpful Partner

Dear Highlights,
I have this partner at school who always asks me for help. But then I fall behind. How do I help my partner and get my work done at the same time?

You sound like a caring person and a good student. The next time your partner asks for help while you’re working, you might say “Sure, I’ll help. I just need a little time to catch up on my work first.”

You might also talk this over privately with your teacher. Explain that you’re happy to help your partner, but you’re concerned about getting your own work done. Since your teacher knows what’s expected of you in class, he or she may have some helpful ideas.
