The joy of Autistic/ADHD/Anxiety disorder-child parenthood. Sleep? Summer? Winter? Thank fuck she’s finally back at school, more time for coffee!

Eh. No kids here, but my job doesn’t magically change during the summer months. I get up the same time in July as I do in March or whatever. Must be nice having a job where you can get up later if you want to.

Yeah it definitely is.

I have the great combo of a work without a fixed schedule (as long as I do my 40 hours in a week, it’s ok), and work from home half of the days.

On WFH days, no commute, no time wasted on picking an outfit, and I can skip the shower. That can easily save 1h-2h of sleep.

But what about the weekend days or your days off ? Do you work 365/365 days ?

Fully remote job ftw! It’s so nice not to have to get up super early just to waste time on the commute. I’m not going back to a full office job ever again.

You do have summer vacation, tho. Maybe not for the whole summer, or maybe not even in the summertime, but it would be this period.

Or not. I have friends who tend to work 60+ hours a week and holidays aren’t a thing. It’s not as such for the money, but rather the desperate need for sufficient mental health professionals. If they were working private practice, they’d have about 200 (capped by their choice) patients. In the public system, about 500 patients and almost always phone for emergencies (which happen often).

And I’ve known other people on contract who had no allowance for time off over a several year contract.

So don’t just assume everyone has an ability to have a vacation.

You realize children are who will take care of you later in life and pay for all the things you want from the government right?

So maybe don’t poo poo people having kids.

My kids are work but I wouldn’t trade it for the world. Without a family, life is pretty pointless. Part of why so many adults are struggling to find meaningful lives.

Kids are also not obligated to take care of you later in life.

Don’t have kids just off the expectation that they’re gonna look after you in the future.

Way to go and crap on people who can’t actually have a family (Not everyone can simply ‘adopt’). Someone doesn’t want a family, that is their choice. Someone wants a family, that is their choice. Don’t go thinking your superiour just because you wanted/can have kids. “Without a family, life is pretty pointless.” Screw that. I am not going to make up with drug/alcohol addicted pedophile supporters or money grabbng A holes ‘just to have a family’ because ‘life is pointless without them’. Sometimes you’re better off without a family then with one. One of the best choices I made… Read more »

He didn’t say he has anything against people who have children. He didn’t even say he himself doesn’t have/want any children. He just said he would “add it to the list of reasons to not have children” I have a 9 and a 6 year old and I have a huge list of reasons why not to have children. I could as easily make a list of why to have them. I love em to bits. I work in a supermarket and I have a huge list of reasons why not to work in a supermarket. So maybe don’t poo… Read more »

Your kids aren’t obligated to take care of you, either. If you can’t get your personal affairs in order for your elder years, that means you’re putting a lot of trust in people to do it for you. You’re also assuming that your kids will even like you by then (not saying that they do or don’t, but things can change in an instant). You’re also assuming that they won’t die in early death due to an accident or illness, or end up disabled themselves due to reasons outside of their control. If you see kids as an investment for… Read more »

My kid gets up earlier than the rest of us because she has to be up 0600 to be on the bus by about 0630 to get to school for 0730. If she wants to shower in the morning, maybe 0530. Part of that is her choice (return to in person schooling vs. virtual with zero commute time). But she didn’t win the lottery with school start times. Some in the boards start as late as 0900 but hers is 0800. I love my kids too, but I’m not going to throw shade on those without kids. Having kids you… Read more »

I guess it depends on the age and on their behavior. When I was grown up enough but still a kid, we would just quietly go to the kitchen and have breakfast with my brothers while watching cartoons on the TV. No need to wake up the parents for that, and it was actually better that way since we would get more TV time. No idea if other kids are doing the same, but since I’ve recently become a parent myself, I’m really looking forward to the time when my kiddo will be able to do the same and let… Read more »

For me, it took a few years. Starting from the age of around 6 or 7 they would wake me up only to announce that they were going to have breakfast. Turning 9 and 10 this year they not only make themselves breakfast, but they will also clean up after. Oh they joy you find in everydaythings as a parent!

That sleep in generally comes when they move out, you have a short period of missing them then the long relax back into ‘my time’… until they start dumping the grandkids on you for before school care or long weekends.

Yes, this. My mother was a sleep-in type, and I wasn’t too many years old before I recognized that silence = freedom. I would often just stroll right out the door, go climb trees and swim at the beach, still only 8 a.m. or so. I could also play more games or watch more tv, pretty much anything as long as I didn’t wake mom with the racket.

Homeschooling is a terrible idea. I can’t tell you the number of people I know who were homeschooled and don’t know how to socialize because they were never around their peers.

There are many opportunities for homeschoolers to socialize. They are allowed to participate in extracurricular activities at the school. There are homeschool groups that meet regularly to teach advanced subjects and socialize. There are churches and civic groups (Boy Scouts/4H) and sports leagues. The problem that I’ve seen with homeschooled kids who aren’t socialized are 90% kids who wouldn’t have thrived in a traditional school environment – either they’re too advanced and would be bored to death in school, or they have attention/learning issues that would have had them falling further and further behind. Then there are the disciplinary issue… Read more »

Weirdly, because of the late start policy my district has for middle and high school, our required wake up time is actually later than we get up naturally anyway. That natural rise time was forged in the black abyss of rising before dawn in the winter; in the time before this late start policy. Not really sure if I’ve won here, or have just adapted.

One word: Homeschool. My kids and I are all not morning people. We sleep until 0900 most mornings and school from 1100-1500 with a lunch and chores break in the middle. My stress levels and anxiety have never been so low and my kids love all the free time being spent actually playing instead of lining up in halls and walking from class to class.

As a former high school special education teacher (for seven years) I definitely feel the other side of this. I left the profession last year and since then I haven’t had any Sundays dreading going to work or dealing with endless paperwork and parents who just seem to think that we’re going to magically take their 15 year old who has a 2nd grade reading level and get them caught up in a couple months.
