    I don't think so. The two oldest do karate (but not during the summer when they are in camp and don't get home until late, plus they are running doing sports all day). The middle does soccer in the fall and baseball in the spring. LO doesn't do any sports yet. Oldest wants to do baseball in the spring, we'll see.

    I really don't think that I do overschedule my kids.

    To much at one time is chaos for my family

    I dont. My dd usually only has one activity at a time.

    Im babysitting the definition of an overscheduled kid though.

    She comes to my house at 8:30am. When she gets here shes coming straight from swim team. I drop her off at an art class at 9:30am. I pick her up at noon, and a few days a week I drop her off at 1:50 for basketball. On days she doesnt have that shes picked up  early to go to piano. 

    Soon shes going to have an environmental type camp, a camp at the science center, plus another one she was talking about. 

    I cant imagine never having time to just hang out. Plus that has to cost a fortune!!

    I don't think so. My son, during vacations , goes for swimming from 9.30 am to 10.30 am and dancing class in the evening from 4 pm to 5 and then goes for skating. Otherwise hes busy with his school...
