The roads are bad here, all schools around us are closed, not ours though:\ I had two friends in wrecks this morning before 6:30, my brother called to tell me there were cars in the ditch everywhere. So I kept my kids home from school. My friend is pissed because the schools made the choice to have school and I didn't "follow" the rules. What do you ladies think??

It doesn't matter what your friend thinks.  What matters is what you feel is best & safest for your children and yourself.  

Enjoy your snow day at home!  :)

~Thanks Ladies~ My kids don't normally miss school. I have four and only one of them has missed any time at all this year and that was a week because he took a fall got hurt really bad. Not to mention the kids have started cleaning house on their own because mommy gave them a free day, and they wanted to say thanks...lol I am sure she will get over it just not sure why she is so upset about it.

Uhm, I think you went with your gut & did what you think is right!  I probably would've done the same thing, along with a bunch of other parents, guarantee you that there are fewer kids in school if the roads are as bad as you say!  It was a judgement call.... your friend has no right to be "pissed" at you, lol!

They are YOUR kids... If you felt like keeping your kids home was in their best interest then you did the right thing as a parent.

your child safety comes first! and there no rule for sending your kids to school. my mom does that all the time if its not safe plus when I took the bus we told her how bad she drove and she didn't wanna drive us, she'll keep us home. but if it starts getting bad she'll get someone to pick us. but forget your friend who got mad. that's so stupppid!
