12 posts in this topic

To all who replied to my jackrabbit post thank you! Anyway have not been able to get back out there. Well today I let my son ditch school and hang out with the old man, we killed it at lake cachuma this morning from 730 to 1000 am, he had a blast but unfortunately has to tell a little fib tomorrow at school.

Wow,You are a GOOD dad.I remember my father taking me out of school when I was a kid,to take me to Lake Cachuma camping for the long weekend. We spent a lot of time there when I was growing up,and I still have some very fond memories of spending time with dad. I am sure your son will have the same good memories. (Good dad)Tom

Just to be unpopular, be careful by yanking your kid out of school like that. It could train them to believe they can do that most anytime. If you'r working, you sure don't want to be doing that. I fired more than one guy for not coming to work. Even for being tardy on anykind of frequent basis. Yep, I thingk you got it right, Bad DAd. teaching the wrong attitude. Good for you for taking the boy fishing, but school and he job must come first. As long as he still understands that.

I can see your concern, if it were done on a regular basis. Every now and then my father and stepfather would go into cahoots and surprise us with a fishing trip to the local canyon with my brother and myself, and I'll tell you, when we think back to the good times those memories are in there. And I will also add that you will not find two guys that miss less work than my brother and I. Plus, for all we know, the day in question might have been a slow period where the company asked for volunteers to stay or go home. My old partner and I would do this constantly since we worked right next to the ocean. He could have also used a vacation day, who are we to prejudge? Anybody that spends time with his kids like that can't be too bad. And I am sorry, but to say that taking your kids fishing will teach them bad habits (even at work) is just as bad as saying that shooting at silhouettes will teach your kids to shoot people. Not so! If they don't already know the difference, it is already too late, and spending some quality family time together for a day is not going to have an adverse effect one way or the other. Besides, fishing is a great way to teach them about some of those work ethics you were talking about, like patience, finesse, and humility when you get skunked. :D
