My three children have split homes. Their ages are 13, 10, and soon to be 7. There is currently a conflict between the father and I over the quality of life our children are experiencing revolving around which activities they might attend and how many days. All three are in Boy and Girl Scouts respectively. The oldest does martial arts and singing, the middle does gymnastics and the occasional chess class, and the youngest does piano and the occasional 9 week school sponsored program. I don't want to be the one who is overloading their time, but I also strongly feel they will gain so much from participating in group activities or involving themselves in groups of their peers. I would like to hear what kind of schedules other kids have to compare what mine are doing and get a better picture of "normal".
