Should parents avoid taking leave of children from school to attend weddings of family members?Many people live far away from their homes for jobs, etc. The parents of school-going children often face the dilemma of taking children's leave from school to visit their native places to attend weddings in the family. Usually, a break of weeks together is required to travel and participate in all the wedding ceremony functions. Moreover, proper rest is not possible on such occasions, often leading to children getting sick.
The best option is to choose the wedding dates in such a manner that it causes the least inconveniences to the family members, but it is not always possible. I am not in favor of letting the children skip their classes or tests/examinations to attend family weddings.
What are your opinion and comments in this regard? Should parents avoid taking leave of children from school to attend weddings of family members?
