Mother. Wife. Communicator. Shopper. ESFP (according to Myers-Briggs). Pretends to hate dogs but really loves them.
So the shootings in OH last week really caused me to stop and think about my kids in school. Every morning I drop them off, give them a kiss and tell them how much I love them and what a great day I hope they have. Then I drive off to work.
Now don’t get me wrong, I absolutely love my job. But sometimes I wonder if it is worth not spending the extra time throughout the day with my kids volunteering at their school, participating in the classroom, being involved at a level that would allow me to monitor the day to day activities that happen at school. If we had more parents involved like this, would it help stop the tragedies that are happening inside our schools?
I don’t know the answer. But I do know this, my kids are worth it.
Would love to hear your thoughts on this.
