One Flourishing, Frugal and Fun Family!

One mother making ends meet and surviving today's recession by writing. One family learning to live off the land, cut back on expenses, and to live a simpler and a more self-sufficient lifestyle.

Wear it out,
Make it do,
Or go without."

Older post, but "yes". As someone who's not a teacher, but works in a public school, a very small percentage of kids use the "need the bathroom" request as a way to ditch class. I have seen groups of students "meet up" there on a regular basis (from different class rotations) at the same time. So, I keep an eye on who goes at my period, and the nurse is certainly good at letting us know who has health issues and need to go a lot. It's like anything else, there's a small few who abuse it. I don't "punish" kids with that. I actually encourage kids to drink lots of water at school. You have to out it in perspective...
