Filled Under:

I don't think you need permission to keep your kids home from school... for weather

I realize it has been over a decade since my kids were in public school, since I started homeschooling them for 2nd and 4th grade.  So, maybe I'm a little naive. But I am having trouble understanding why people are arguing with various Governors and Mayors about schools not being closed.  Last week, it was Atlanta. His week, New York. In one specific tweet fight, Al Roker complained,

"So my daughter's NYC public school is being let out early,... Is it worth putting kids' Safety at risk?"
 For goodness sakes, he is Al Frikken Roker.  If anyone should have the authority in his own home to make a weather call, it should be Al Roker.

So what about you?

The National Weather Service is interrupting all your favorite daytime talk shows, soaps, and syndicated comedy programs to tell you that you are about to experience hell on earth in a major weather event.  Do you

A. Watch the new scroll and check the internet waiting to hear weather or not your school is closed, and if it is not, send them to school against your better judgement. or

B. Send the kids back to bed, because you are the momma or daddy, and don't want to leave your child's fate to the bus driver?

...Although, I have to admit some of them did a bang up job in taking care of kids on stranded busses, getting them home, or returning them to the schools to sleep overnight.

It is up to you, but as a homeschooler who is looking in from the outside, it looks like you gave up your right to parent your own kids?
