    Personally I dread school holidays. The only thing I like about them is the fact theres no chaos in the morning.

    Embrace the chaos

    I've been on both sides of this situation. Before my kids started school I hated the school holidays. I relied very heavily on playgroup, creche and kindy to get us out of the house and they all stopped for the holidays. I had pnd and I really struggled to do the 24/7 parenting thing for a fortnight without our term time routine to follow.
    Now I'm (mostly) recovered I love the school breaks, we catch up with friends, go to the park or just hang out at home in our jammies all day, have 3 day long Lego sessions, cook things we wouldn't usually cook, go to the movies etc. Basically we do the things I always imagined myself doing as a parent.

    I guess in the past the school holidays were really tough and now they are a pleasure, I love hanging out with the kids

    Edit: just noticed this is an old thread bumped up...

    I love love love school holidays.

    But for parents and some kids they are pure he'll. It is not about loving or caring for or even cleaning up their mess.

    It can be about the break in the routine. Some kids or their parents just don't cope with their routine out of whack. I know a lot of asd kids that feel like their world is falling apart.

    For others it the personal interactions between kids at certain stages of life.

    It could be a work related who is going to care for my child while i earn the money to put food in their mouths.

    It could be the financial pressures of have them home.

    There are lots of reason to dread it.


    Not everyone experience are the same.

    I have 3 kids 8, 5.5 and 3 and I LOVE LOVE LOVE school holidays. I wish we had them more often. I love spending time as a family and having my babies home with me. I also hear comments such as, bet you can't wait for the kids to go back to school etc. I personally don't feel that at all and cherish every minute of the holidays, but I also understand that we are all different with different family dynamics.

    For the record, i love school holidays too. Depending on how my boys cope with the change in routine. We always do mega fun stuff etc

    But there are days where its horrible. And i dont think anyone needs to be told what they can and cant feel about the subject.
