Peer Editing: Tough Love

Peer editors need to practice "tough love."

Remember, your critical comments will help your friend get a better grade!  If you don't point out the less than beautiful issues, then the writer may not notice them, and they will get lots of "red notes" from the teacher (and a lower grade).

(Mom doesn't really want to push her baby out, but knows that the child must learn to live (and fly) independently.  So being "tough" is really the strongest kind of love.)
