Haidee V Eugenio Pacific Daily News Published 1:35 AM EST Dec 28, 2018 When a student is intoxicated or is caught drinking at school, educators would call the police, only to be told that officers won't be on campus unless the parent of the minor is also present. Parents, however, don't show up or couldn't be reached. School principals at a Friday panel discussion on campus safety and security expressed their disappointment with some of the responses of law enforcement as well as parents, especially after the parent won't show up or can't be reached after the school tried to contact them about their child.

Councillor Yvonne McNeilly said: ‘It’s vital that parents take an active interest in their child’s education.

DIXON – A small village of law enforcement, officials and other personnel worked in sync Wednesday with a singular goal: to make sure things didn’t get worse. The incident happened in minutes as Matthew A.

But a new study suggests all that taxi-ing to and from these activities is actually placing too much strain on families. A study, published in journal Sport, Education and Society, found extracurricular involvement “dominates” family life and potentially harms children’s development, especially for families with more than one child. The study’s lead author, Dr Sharon Wheeler said: “We know that parents are particularly keen to ensure their children get on in life - parents initiate and facilitate their children’s participation in organised activities as it shows that they are ‘good’ parents. However, our research highlights that the reality can be somewhat different. A busy organised activity schedule can put considerable strain on parents’ resources … [Read more...] about Kids’ Extra-Curricular Activities Could Be Doing More Harm Than Good
