when I was at school, my parents took me out for holidays in term time. Had no affect on me. Did A Levels, a degree, etc. I think the new rules are to stop people from spending half the term out
I think it varies, I know a kid my son's age who felt her A'levels suffered because at Christmas she was always back a week after and was always starting the new school year 2 weeks late. My brother could have spent the half the year out and still got A's in everything but me if I had a few days off college I'd struggle like hell to catch up. So I still think it's not worth it, but then I canny afford to go on holiday and I'm never lending the money just a a few day's I wont remember two week later
Went on holiday twice when my oldest was 3/4 and just didn't get it, load of crap, and have very little memory of it, my oldest now 20 just finds his holidays tedious gimmicks, but his friends like them and he want's to spend time with is mates.
You can't buy happiness but you can buy a bike and that's pretty close
