I've read that some school districts are charging parents for the time they take them out of school. Apparently absences affect how much tax money they receive. They can't require it yet by law, but they're probably getting there.

Unfortunately, my parents never took me out of school, not even for doctor's appointments. They had to be scheduled after school.

I guess I'd be a bad parent because I'd leave them with their grandparents for a week and enjoy my anniversary cruise with my husband!

Terri77! There is absolutely nothing wrong with leaving the kids with the grandparents. There is so much to be said about mom and dad getting away for a short period of time to be a couple, even if it is for just a short period of time.

Of course, you justify it by emphasizing the importance of grandma and grandpa bonding with the grand kids, and vice versa. It's called quality time for you and dad, garndma and grandpa, and the grand kids.

We would love for our sons to leave our grandsons with us for a week to get away with their wives.

Even better than That Terri77 Leave Hubby and the Kids at Home And cruise with me this will give them more Bonding time.

I remember when I was young My Mom and Dad won A trip to Florida and they split all 6 of us kids up betweeen family members for the week, still to this day everyone of us remembers exactly where we were and still tell the stories of the memories of that week. it's known as the "mom and Dad florida trip" I was with my Grandparents, I can remember the whole week ...They Even broke down and bought me Plaid Bell Bottoms...I was so happy....

It's the memories that live forever. sometimes it's a great thing to leave the kids. I think we had more fun than mom and dad did that week. yea we also loved missing school all week.

Every opportunity I get with my grandkids I see it as a chance to undo things I screwed up on in raising my kids! There is nothing in the world like grandparenting, it rocks.

Well this is all good to hear. When I get a husband and kids I'll make sure they get plenty of quality time with their grandparents.

I am a teacher and also pull my own son out while I am off-track. (I am at a year round school and he is at a traditional.) I have also had students that get pulled during school time. As a teacher, it doesn't bother me. I suggest your request an independent study from your childrens' teachers. This will allow them to keep up to date on their school work and not fall behind. Do this at least 1 month prior to your vacation. Let me know if you have any more questions.
