Family leave = family values

80° sunny day in Charleston and my morning calendar fell apart…so I decided to do lunch at my second grader’s school.  After lunch I organized an impromptu game of basketball for her and her classmates.

Going to lunch at her school communicates love and care.  It is largely the privilege of the unemployed (many “stay-at-home” mothers), the self-employed, and higher management.

Children grow up fast and by their teens they deign to spend time with us.  If this country was as “family values” oriented as we claimed, every parent would have the right to do lunch at his or her child’s elementary school monthly.

    Greg, your day was much like mine. You spent some real time with your second grader. I spent some real time in mediation with 2 parents acting like second graders!
