I pretty much agree with what has been said here so far. I do think it is important for kids to be involved in activities, but finding that right mix that allows for family and relaxing time is also important.
One thing that I have always been strict about when my kids had activities is---you still have to help out at home. I think it is important for them to know even though they are busy there are still chores at home that they are responsibile for.
Lastly, we have never allowed our kids to be involved in activities that take place on Sunday---other than church related things. Sunday is set aside for church and family. I am hoping this will be a "habit" that they continue with when they leave my house.
