Parenting Perspective: Summer Slide

May 27, 2010 8:44:56 AM PDT
I was talking with other Moms during my son Micah's Little League game the other night. The topic was homework - or the lack of it in recent weeks from our sons' teachers. Now, I'm as ready for summer as anyone. And believe me, Micah's not complaining. But school isn't over yet and we all noticed that the teachers have just about given up on giving the kids work to do after school. And frankly, I'm not sure this is a good thing.
