OK, so I am a work-outside-the-home mom, desperately trying to start working inside the home. I just had to sign my son (The older of my 2 boys) up for summer camp, and after school program for the fall. He just turned 6 and is going into first grade. The program looks fantastic. There is a lot of fun activities, the teachers seem great, he's going to have a lot of fun. But I am totally freaking out! They go on field trips to a water park and an amusement park. Parents don't go to help supervise because they have a lot of teachers, they don't need chaperones. He'll be there from 7:30 in the morning when I drop him off, till 4PM when my husband picks him up. When he starts school in the fall, I have to have my sister drop him off, (because I have to be at work too early to drop off) then when school is out he'll be picked up by the after school program's bus (There are 2 attendants and a bus driver on the bus at all times) and my husband will pick him up from the after school program at 4pm. I know that they are always supervised, etc. but I can't help it!
A week ago, a 5 year old was molested at a local library in one of the book aisles while his mother was looking in another area of the library, there are other horror stories about what older kids in some schools do to younger kids on the bus when the attendants aren't looking.
I am so freaked out about this, and I know that I have to let go a little bit. I did my homework, the program looks good, the kids are separated by age groups and supervised at all times etc. So how do I start to feel better about this??!!!
