What does your child do?

The Mosquito is planning a series of articles on children's schedules and activities outside of school. We would like to hear from readers on the subject, including the following questions:

How many activities are your children involved in outside of school?

What are the activities they attend?

How do you decide the activities from all the choices offered?

How much unscheduled time do your children have on afternoons or weekends?

How does your child's activities impact other family members and parents' schedules?

All comments from parents and other community members are welcome. Please reply by January 5, via e-mail to: or mail to: Carlisle Mosquito, P.O. Box 616, Carlisle, MA 01741. Thank you in advance for taking the time to respond.
