If you've got an elementary school student, you're probably familiar with Class Dojo. It's an app schools and teachers use to communicate with parents, and BOY HOWDY, I have a problem with Class Dojo.

I check my daughter's Dojo like every ten minutes. Am I a deranged nutjob? Am I the worst kind of helicopter parent? (Wait--don't answer that; we all know the answer is yes.)

I like knowing if my daughter is behaving in her class, and I love that Class Dojo gives me updates in real time. It's a double-edged sword; if she's acting up then I stress about it all day long.

How often do you check your child's Class Dojo? Is once a day enough? Once a week? I think I'd be doing well to get my check-ins down to once an hour.
