WE are granolamoms oldest girls Kait and Kaci. THis board is cool.
This is what we think!!
If a kid is in school they go the whole year with some telling them when to eat, what to eat, how quickly to eat. When to take a break, how long to take a break. They really get to choose anything during the day for themselves. Then summer comes and it's off to camp and the same thing.
When a kid turns 12 or so they want to make choices for themselves.
We are almost sure that your daughter just wants to hang this summer. She wants to get up when she wants to and eat what she wants to eat and when she wants to eat. She wants to be with her friends at home. not some kids at camp she will never see again.
Sorry moms , but camp really isn't very cool once you get older. We went to drama camp and adventure camp unitl we were about 12 -13. After that we would have rather stayed home and hung out with the kids we wanted to hang out with. Plus, alot happens the summer you are twelve. YOu are now more a teen and less a kid. Older kids don't mind having you around. It is a fun summer.
