Does it depress anyone to know that Mon-Fri your kids spend more time in school than with you?
Mon-fri school:(7am-4pm-bus time included) home: (4pm-9pm bed time) and thats not even counting if the kids have activities afterschool!
Do you think this is why kids are having more problems today?
Is it sad that now days we spend more time with our co-workers, than with our families?

lilhoney the day I realized this... it almost brought me to TEARS! I always imagined enjoying sending my child to school, me getting a small job (that fit around the SCHOOLS SCHEDULE!) and enjoy the typical american life... Then this was brought to my attention.. Now when I think of sending my child to public school I feel like im on the losing end of a custody battle-- WITH THE GOVERMENT! .. I only get my child a few hours a day, weekends & short summers!

No it does not depress me, it's their education, we are blessed that the school our children go to teaches them the same morals we teach at home. I am a SAHM and drive my children to school Mon. Tues. Thurs. and Fri., they get there at 8:50 and on Wed. it's late start and I drop them off at 9:50. I pick them up at 3:15 every day after school and volunteer every week in both of their classrooms. Between that and the vacations they have and Summer Vacation, I get them far more than the school does. I feel if you like the school they are in, it's no problem. I don't believe in homeschooling for my own personal reasons (no bashing) so I feel them being in one of the top schools in our State gives them a far superioor education than I could. We teach them the things that schools don;t teach, that's our job as parents.
