Things My Children Will Never Know

They will never know the discomfort of writing math facts with wet clothes on because of getting wet with snow during recess. If snow soaks through their snowpants, I allow them to change into dry clothes.

They will never know the misery of sustained silent reading with sweaty feet because reading is after gym class. In our school, if your feet are hot, feel free to take off your socks.

They will never know the severe thirst that a bubbler just can't quench. We drink water and juice and tea and hot chocolate anytime we want.

They will never know the time consuming task of completing homework. We can work at our own pace and finish during the day before the afternoon activities begin.

What won't your children ever know?
