For parents who work, it can be hard to find a babysitter for their children when they have a couple days off of school. McCracken had a mom that taught in a traditional school, but she and her sister were in a year round school so they were by themselves for a long time. When they had 2 to 3 weeks off of school it was hard to find a babysitter for a short amount of time (“The Pros and Cons of Year-Round Schools”). Additionally, most year round schools have 45 days of learning, then they have a 15 day break, before they go back to school again (“Year-Round Education Program Guide”). This schedule puts so much pressure on parents to find a good babysitter for 15 days only, then having to find another babysitter 45 days later.
