Does working status have anything to do with supervision of children during the summer?

My dh works from home the 2 days a week that I work. Or my mom watches them if he has to go in. My girls are 11 & 8 so they do not need the same kind of supervision a baby needs. He doesn't seem to have a problem with working form home.


We do not have any part-time day camps in my area and I do not want to pay for full-time when I only need 2 days a week.

"..."having it all" isn't a euphamism for having married a mealticket."

Oh....so I guess I don't understand the issue with going during the day if one is able.

again, you seem to have zero grasp of how a professional workplace works. in the first place, shifting or splitting the workday, or doing some wah doesn't reduce the number of hours or even minutes put into working. and

so which is it--are people who have the desire and intelligence to achieve work-life balance mockable for giving up the opportunity to earn "oodles of money" in lieu or that balance, or do they have "pretensions about earning oodles"? you seem to be tying yourself in knots trying to find a hook here.


personally, i don't buy the argument that few people, most women, are too

THANK YOU for your support and no, I've never met any teacher like that either. However, many of us are getting ready to "coast" through the summer!

I used to spend a lot of time every August helping my mom get her room ready-- it was a chore!

You mean teachers don't just show up to their classrooms on the first day of school with everything magically set up and organized for them, with their lesson plans and materials all at the ready, courtesy of the Lesson Plan Fairy?
