    AMEN!!! I agree with you 100%. I am so happy our homeschool co op is so ultra organized and everyone is punctual.

    Unfortunately (as with anything) a few rotten apples seem to spoil the barrel!

    Oh my word!!! Seriously? Homeschooling is not an excuse to disrespect other people’s time. I’m right there with you.

    Daughter, I totally agree with everything you stated. The real world runs on real time and when being late is affecting so many others it truly is a lack of respect for others,. Also,to raise children this way I feel gives them a false impression. When they get a job they can’t just show up whenever they feel like it..

    I like being punctual, too, and feel embarrassed when I am late. “Homeschool Time” in your own home, or with friends that feel likewise is one thing, but is not appropriate for a museum class.

    I agree one hundred percent! As a former VP of a homeschool group nothing makes running s successful group harder than people that can’t show up on time.

    Oh, I am so with you! Just yesterday, I sat in my car fuming waiting for my son to finish up a class. It finished a half hour late because it started a half hour late! I have five kids and a life and a schedule to follow. Just deciding to start a class late for anything but an emergency is just plan rude!

    I am so with you on this one! We opted for testing by the district this year. Being that we live in the city, the only place to park at the administration building is at the meters on the side of the building, which have a 2 hour limit. We arrived early almost every day, and the one day we were not early, we were right on time. There was 1 girl that showed up for all 5 of the test days 15-30 minutes late. Being that she was the only other child testing, they waited for her. This not only made it so that I had to make an extra trip out to the meters, because it put me over the two hour limit, but it cost me money each day too, and that is not mentioning that I have better things to do with my time than to sit at that building.

    You are definitely right! Though I must confess that I’m one of those that can run a few minutes late to whatever it is we might be attending, I completely don’t expect for people to wait for us, it is disrespectful for those that do show up on time to have to wait for those ((of us)) that come late and your time is just as valuable as theirs ((ours.))
