My dd is 12 had 2 sleep overs this weekend, (no school on Friday), a movie and mall fun time. She had a basketball clinic from 4:30-9 pm with pizza and extras. They showed a movie after that so she didn't get home till around 11. It's been hard to 'keep HER plates in the air' esp w/being sick!!My husband has been the TAXIER (is that a term?) lol This kid has had 4 whirlwind weekends in a row busy all the time. I love it (living vicariously through her) ha! Today church and a soccer game right after that. I wish I still had that kind of energy!!! She is gouchier than heck this morning and got real... sassy so I called off taking her to Sunday school. Do you call things off if your kids get disrespectful? Do you think kids can get TOO busy with activities?

We also made a rule early on that there could be no more than one sleepover per weekend, and it could only be on Friday night. I think if my child doesn't have at least one day each week to spend with just the immediate family, then they have too many activities or too much social life. I think it's important to limit activities and social events if they are crowding out family bonding time, or if it's too much and the kids are getting grouchy or disrespectful.
