Parenting: Sometimes change can be good

When I was in elementary school, we had classes in the morning, then lunch, then recess and then more classes. Last year, my son Micah's elementary school implemented a "recess before lunch" schedule. Micah, who was in fourth grade at the time, and was used to the "lunch-then-recess" model, thought it was weird. At the time, so did I.
