Default Re: Do you take your kids out of school to cruise?

I would agree Anne. I'm a father of (4) children who pays close attention to my children's school "responsibilities". Why do some people feel that the only time a child will learn is when they are in their classroom. For the average Joe, these type of trips don't occur more then once every five or so years and us family types are looking for the deals as well.

I remember my first taste of salt water and what a starfish felt like. I also remember my parents teaching me my homework while I was on vacation. The only difference was that instead of being in the classroom, I was out on the road experiencing it first hand. To this day I remember what I learned in my homework (Newton's Second Law). "Dad please stop...."

Once again,,,,it's not the kids,,,it's the parents....
