My son has an entire week off for Thanksgiving and an entire week off for Christmas. When I saw that on the school calendar, I had a mild heart attack. I work from home and rely heavily on his time at school to get things done. I also know that he thrives on the structure of his school day and goes really stir crazy really quickly when he’s out of school.
What do you think about time off from school? Is it a happy time or a headache time? I think when my kids are a little older I’ll be happier about their time off of school. Hopefully we’ll plan family vacations around the time off. I definitely remember loving time off when I was in elementary school.
Do you make special plans to fill the time when your kids are on break?
