Using the school bus versus parent pickup/drop

Living close to the school has a lot of advantages and one of them being the ability to choose to drop and pick the kids up from school.

So when it was time to enroll for the school bus we too had our share of discussions J around the pros and the cons. A lot of it emotional but finally the bus prevailed.

It provides independence to the kids, exposes them to different age groups, increases confidence and is an opportunity for them to have an adventure to and fro from school. Most importantly  for a lot of us I think freeing the parent (read mothers) from yet another responsibility.

So thankfully  we’ve had a great run so far. Infact, my son gets very upset if he misses the bus and hates being dropped to school. He insists that we try and catch it en-route -which incidentally becomes another adventure for him.

  1. nice one, i do agree the bus is a better option helps the kid interact with other kids not necessarily from the same class..
