Curious what thoughts are (Mostly of Parents) on kids missing school for vacations?
I'm a single dad with split custody. (But Ex and I live really close, I coach their sports teams...Point is I see my kids even more then half the time).
Every year I take them to spring training for a week and they miss 3 to 4 days of school.
They were in elementary school so I never thought twice about them missing the days.
now my son is in Middle school. He got all A's and 1 B last report card. But planning this years trip it will be 4 days he misses.
Perhaps I am just a nervous parent with a kid in middle school for the 1st time but is that too much? Is this starting to be a bad idea? Ideas to make it less impactfull?
