Everyday my kids go to school for 8 hours.
That is 8 hours where most of the time I have no idea what they’re doing, how they’re behaving, or who they’re interacting with. It’s 8 hours where I sometimes feel utterly out of control. Someone else is helping them grow into the person they eventually become someday. When your kids go off to school it can sometimes feel like there isn’t much you can do to have an affect on their day. You are literally trusting a stranger with a large part of helping them develop as a human being. That thought scares me.
