I was talking with DH yesterday afternoon about summer programs for my kids. DD is 8 (she'll be 9 in a few weeks) and DS is 4. He completely disagrees with me on taking them to the library for a summer reading program. He says that it's the summer and they should be home being kids. I work at home, plus I'll be going to school all summer, but I still want them doing something constructive with their time. He thinks I'm just trying to get rid of them. But, I can't leave them alone there. I'd still have to be there with them during the program times. There's a summer recreational program at DD's school that is Monday-Thursday from 1-5. They do arts & crafts, play games, go on field trips, and learn about nutrition and safety, things like that. I thought it would be great for her, plus she could have time away from DS (he is developmentally delayed and she gets very frustrated with him and the attention he needs sometimes), but again, DH doesn't agree. We were rasied very differently, so he doesn't see the benefits of the summer programs the same way I do. What can I say to get him to understand that, no, I'm not just trying to get rid of my kids for the summer??
