RJ likes to do things his own way and won't ask for help... even when he really should. That's why he's struggling in math class. He tells his parents he'd rather eat parsnips or take a bath than do math. Many of his assignments are missing or incomplete, and RJ blames Norma "the booger picker" and Rodney "the alphabet burper" for distracting him from his schoolwork.
With help and support from his family, however, RJ learns how to do things the right wayand the complete way. To his happy surprise, RJ discovers he doesn't have to keep doing things over and over and over again if he stays on task and asks for help when he gets stumped.
