I would suggest maybe taking your child to school in the morning, and picking her up afterwards in the afternoon. Don't give us the crap about not being able to because your job won't allow it. If you cared as much as you state, then find a job that will permit you the time or hours to do this. It's stupid of anyone to allow their first grader to walk down Highway 12 with the kind of traffic that runs that road.

Try to be a little more sensitive. Sometimes it's not as easy as 'find a new job'- We all have families to support. For me, finding a new job would also mean giving up my little truck, my children's home. Our one little tiny piece of stability. And, NO my employer has no sympathy for this kind of stuff. Nor does any other employer that actually produces a product that I have ever worked for. Maybe you could bring this to your school board???

I agree Robert! Don either has no children of his own, runs his own business and does what he likes, or is simply an idiot. My office would also not allow this. And as far as trashing my career and starting over in one where I'd have the flexability to do such a thing... well that's just not an option. Wake up DON! You have no idea what you're talking about!
