Are We Hindering Our Children?
Short answer...yes. But I needed to get something off my chest that I have encountered the last few weeks and lets face it, I have Mom-friends on Facebook so i'm not going to rant there! Im talking about picking our kids up from school early. I hate myself for saying this but here it goes. "Back in my day" *eye roll* My friends and I had to wait after school in some sort of aftercare until our parents had the time to come get us. We never complained about it because almost everyone was in the same situation(or so it seemed).The bus was a second option, AND THEN our parents picking us up right away was like a magical special day. I am bringing this up because(my son is not of school age yet) but many school-aged parents now are waiting in long lines of cars literally an hour before their child needs to be picked up. God-forbid they cant get off work mid-day to get their child in time, they jump through hoops to pick them up early! I personally believe this is hindering them for situations that they may encounter later in life. I understand missing your child. I totally get it- I miss my little one the second he goes down for a nap. Its so pathetic. Back to the point. I personally don't care whether a parent picks a child up early etc, its the principle of the thing. I doesn't just stop at school. We were raised to be well behaved and stay out of adults way. Now in this twisted society, parents kiss the ground their kids stand on and believe their child over another adult/teacher. Yes, there are still normal cases and this isn't everyone. But it seems to be prevalent enough to talk about. Lets start a conversation! What are your thoughts on this? Comment your take or a story you have below!
