I support educational field trips but believe they can be done without extravagance. We live in Virginia, which is rich in history. Nothing has been said to the kids about anything being taught. ...

To add to the above, another mom and I agreed to pay $25 more each so the two of us could share a room and have our own bed. We found out that we were to be bedmates right before the trip because...

Read about my other daughter's field trip:

The fourth grade went on an overnight to Jamestown last year at a cost of $150 per child. My cost was an additional $175 (I was naturally uncomfortable sending her without me or my husband). Other...

My children are 10 and 12, and it's 8:30 for them. When they were babies, it was 7:00, and we've adjusted as they've grown. As we go to bed fairly early, we don't have that much time to ourselves...
