One of my big concerns is that the move back to our traditional earlier time will look petty and punitive.... I feel that if we switch back to how we've always done it, it will be spun to make us look bad.
Do you think I'm being wrong? Or do you feel as I do that at some time a parent has to chose themselves?
Just don't want to reach a point where it's so painful that it's easier to walk away from all of them- that would be a hard bell to unring, and those kids and I adore each other.
