Are our kids too busy?

Kids today seem to have so many choices of after school activities to pick from--sports, academic teams, band, drama, jobs, church group, service clubs etc. Sometimes my Dd leaves the house at 7:30am and doesn't return until 10:30 pm. It seems to becoming a normal routine not only for her, but many kids. My Dd is in high school ,but I know of many elementary aged children who have a scheduled activity every night of the week.

Are our kids too busy?
Do you set limits on the number of activities your child can do?
Do you think the more activities the better?
Do your kids have time for family and relaxing? Do feel that keeping your children involed keeps them out of trouble?
