It's funny but they affected my family even when we were home educating because it changes the number of kids who are out and about in places like the library and shopping centres. Now that we're schooling it determines when we can go away on holidays, unfortunately.
Not really I used to sometimes babysit for my neighbour,but the kids are older now and I no longer need to do this. The only thing I do not like particularly is when I have to go to the shopping centre during the school holidays as there seem to be so many more people about. I just avoid the peak periods when there are 'Vacation Activities' happening,and so even this is not a real bother.
No, not really. There is less traffic on the roads in school holidays, so I don't mind. There may be more kids around at the shops, but I am not the kind of person who lets something like that get to me.
Not really, except for the fact that the road is not as busy when I'm travelling to work, I think it's great. When my son was younger, I used to take time off work to take him out somewhere, now he's older ofcourse it's different,
