I don't join the PTA but I do participate in fundraisers. I donate to causes and when someone else plans to do something special for the teacher. I don't volunteer or apply to be room mom. I never go to have lunch with my daughter or help out with field day. Is there something wrong with that? When I was growing up, my mom never saw the inside of my school except on the 1st day for registration. So I thought it was normal to not be so involved. Now I'm made to feel bad for not doing more. I'm sure not every mom in the world is superly involved at their kids' school. I do go to open house and curriculum night though, but not much more.

Im really not that involved in my girls school. I go to all performances (both girls are in chorus and my oldest does band and palys in middle school) and all meetings for those activities but that is about it. I dont do field day and rarely attend the parties. I work and its hard for me to get away for everything. Even if I was a SAHM, I dont think I would be much more involved than I am.
