Working Mothers and Back to School

Did You Skip Work to Take Your Child to Class?

Back-to-school jitters aren't only reserved for lil ones. Parents can be just as anxious as they prepare for the child's first day in a new classroom.

For working parents, the return to school often involves some calendar choreography to manage work commitments during the same time frame. But for many, it is well worth taking a vacation day to ensure that they can be there to see their tots off and pick them up at dismissal.

With most of the nation's schools back in session, did you take work off for the first day of school?

I did not take the whole day off because my son is in 7th grade this year and he also had play rehearsal after school but I did get to work late because I made him a fancy breakfast and dropped him off. I mean I only have 5 more 'first days of school' left with him. I am going to make the most of them
