Most kids are dying to be on Spring Break. They can't wait for a week of no reading, no math, no science, etc. And some of them truly deserve a break. School can be demanding and difficult at times.

I think my kids deserve a break from the daily grind. Everyone needs a break from time to time. That is why we take give ourselves a break from emails, phone calls and meetings.

Unfortunately, we live in a time when we are plugged into work all the time. We answer emails and phone calls while we are vacation, it's just part of life at this point. Because we are always plugged in, should our kids be? Do they have homework while they are on vacation?
