Re: Vacation during school time

I think a week is a lot of time to miss as well even in the third grade.

My stepkids bm wanted to have my sd miss two weeks to go to Hawaii (we had custody - lived 3000 miles away making it a more difficult trip) and we said no - we did not want her to miss that much school but we were most angry because she did not want to take my ss with her - she was always mad at him for telling the truth to the GAL so it was a neener neener to him that see you have to be on MY side for me to want to include you - sick just sick - she sent this card to him one time saying she never intended for him to know his father and he should "want" to live with her and should have told the GAL what she needed to hear for him to stay with her - my sd lied (so did her half sister it was obvious they were coached and we had a clear and provable case of PAS on the part of bm) but ended up with us anyway - too much wrong in bm household that bm couldn't hide.

BM took it to court (she took EVERYTHING to court) and the courts sided with us because that was too much school to miss - it wasn't her parenting time and the judge did not like the fact she did not want to take her son.

I agree that maybe if the child missed a couple days (like Friday and Monday if the wedding is on Saturday) but a whole week with a important test following (to me) is inappropriate.
