We have a rule on my son's football team, if you do not practice- you do not play. There are a few families going out of town for fall break and are upset their children will be benched for part of the game. I think that since you knew the rules before you signed up you just have to decide if the vacation is worth the consequences. If so, go on vacation- if not, stay home.
Are you a rule follower or do you sign up for activities (not just sports) without reading the rules or do you think that rules are silly and its OK to break them? Just wondering if I am off base here... I think if you know the rules up front you should: follow them, work to change them or take whats coming when you break them. I think that to let each do what works for them is too complicated and in many ways unfair to those that follow the rules. Your thoughts?
It's just like starting a new job, if, you tell the employer that the vacation was already paid for and planned at the time of the interview,they can not hold that against you. My DD is a cheerleader, there is only certain times we can go on vacation, I make arrangements in advance,so,my DD can still be on the team. We also have a rule in church,if,you don't make rehearsal,you can't sing, unless you have a good reason,like illness,family issues. We must realize we all love rules, but, there is times a rule have to be broken and made up.
