It’s the week of Spring Break for our family, so the theme of this episode, naturally, is Spring Break-down. In the episode, I’ll cover what’s in the ParentNormal News about spring breakdowns. I’ll also touch on springbreakdowns in the ParentNormal Mailbag segment while also covering other calendar events this week like Daylight Savings Time and St. Patrick’s Day.
ParentNormal Questions Answered in this Episode:
- Do you have any parenting tips for St. Patrick’s Day?
- How do you survive the daylight savings time change with kids when every parent knows that keeping kids on a schedule is so important?
- Am I the only parent who feels like they are being mocked when they hear the term “spring break?” Isn’t there a better name that doesn’t imply spring break is actually a break for parents?
In the ParentNormal News:
Students across the nation are showing adults that it is still possible for people of all backgrounds to unite behind a single message, and that message to adults this Spring Break week is, “I’m bored.” The student demonstrations of boredom began during minute number two of Spring Break and they are expected to continue throughout the week.
Parents have attempted to end the demonstrations by giving their kids endless entertainment opportunities and by taking them on expensive vacations, but the students are resolved to declare their boredom whenever there is a potential pause in their entertainment.
