Hmmm....possibly ;)

Even my ms'er was not allowed to hang around for try-outs the other day. They were told they had to come back at 4:30.

some Ys full day camps are all about taking those kids places, the pool, parks, campgrounds, etc. their weeks have a "theme" and plans follow accordingly.

I live in a small rural community that can not support a for profit business for school before or aftercare. The choice for working parents is to stagger schedules, find private care, or live somewhere else that provides the service. It's not rocket science.

lol...

Or perhaps she is lacking in critical thinking skills.

I did not realize that "somone elses care" was such a difficult term for a parent.
Or if there is no after school program or YMCA that mean sll the parents are SAHP and the kids are free to fend fo rthemselves. who knew.

That must be a issue in her area.

Yes, we have a Y here too but it is more expensive and out of my way.

I wouldn't be very happy with not being able to bring my child into the school or picking them up. Wow.

That is why choosing where you live is very important if you decide to have children.

Glad I have a lot of choices :)

No, just an issue for me if I did not have the after-care. Glad I have the choice in my district. Glad where I live :)
