WIRTW #371 (the “no more pencils…” edition)

I love school. I mean, I loved school when I was a student, but now that I work, and my wife works, I really love when my kids are in school. It means that I don’t have to expend any energy thinking about how they are going to spend their days. The bus picks them up and drops them off, period. Now that school’s out, however, we have to manage sitters and camps, and getting them to and from sitters and camps. So, we’ve spent the past two weeks dropping off and picking up at camp (which, for me, is 45 minutes from work, without traffic).

How do other employees, and their employers, cope with this seasonal time-management dance? Read “School’s Out!” Means More Free Time for Kids, But None for Working Parents. Here is Help for Employers Managing the Fallout. — via Employment Law Watch
