The Facebook Effect: Dawn
My mother became very ill while visiting my sister in NY and was hospitalized with seizures of unknown causes. I had to relieve my sister. I made the decision to take my son as his father works 12-hour shifts and I have no other family here in NE. Though my son is on the honor roll and up until then had NO history of absences I still had to deal with this aggravation. My fear is that if my mother becomes ill again and I have to go to her home in the Caribbean, the Millard school district policy is that they will no longer give you the work to take with you, but pressure the child to make up the work plus keep up upon return. So I have to choose between my only parent and my only child.
