Do you go through this with your kids at this time of year?

I swear without fail right before Spring break my kids have this zone out time. They are burned out from school and have a hard time focusing. We have been late leaving the house 3 times in the past two weeks and I think they both have detention today for it. Is it only our house or does this happen to you too?

  • My kids arent old enough yet, but I can totally see that. They are probably tired and overwhelmed and need a break. :) Best of luck.

  • My kids are still going strong with school. They haven't missed a day of school yet and they still leave early for the bus every day (to hang out with their friends). They are in 5th, 3rd and 2nd grades.

  • No not really, they do start complaining though and asking when vacation starts though. It is the longest stretch in school between vacation breaks.

  • We have weeks throughout the year this happens in. I haven't spent any time trying to figure out what triggers these little annoying episodes.

  • My kids are only on kindergarden and they are already starting to want a break from school, right now they are actually on their spring break which hopefully will help.
