After School

What happens after school can include a lot of decisions and planning as well.  After school care, transportation, playtime with friends, sports and homework are all possible factors when making decisions about what happens after school.

Here are some questions commonly used when talking about what happens after school.

"Does your child need after school care?"
"Will your child be riding the bus home?"
"Do you want to have play dates after school with our children?"
"Do you want to enroll your child in sports?"
"Will your child have to finish homework before playing?"

If you are asked any of these questions, here are ways that you could respond.

"Yes, both my wife and I work so we need help after school."
"I am a stay at home mom so I do not need any afterschool care."

"Yes my child will be riding the bus home."
"No, I will be picking up my child after school."
"Sure, a play date would be fun for the kids."
"Play dates are great!  Let's plan some."

"She does not get much homework in this grade."
"Yes, we usually have our kids finish their homework before playing."
