Am I the only "bad parent" that hates school fundraisers?
I absolutely hate having my children ask other people for money (latest one being for a school walk-a-thon). I would just write my child a check and be done with it, but they have a goal of $20 per child, and with multiple children in school and a super tight budget I just can't afford to do that right now.
BTW we have no family that lives close. Grandparents etc. live in other states so we would be asking friends, and neighbors for money... so we just didn't do it. Instead I chose to ask my children's teachers what they needed for their classrooms then go and buy a few items for them. (spent less than $10 each).
