Re: Acronym really bothering me
i know many people who ARE part-time parents. As in, when it's not their turn to have the kids, or when the kids are staying with grandparents, or the kids are at day care, the parents are totally MIA. As in, "don't call me, I'm not on duty right now". They also feel that way when they are out with their friends or on vacations. I am "on break from my kids right now" they say. Some of these are my family members and some are neighbors. I kid you not. People actually think that they get to "quit" being a parent when they feel that they need a break. Let's face it, there are just some lazy parents out there in every type of situation.
