I thought that was the point of the show... for the 'other mom' to make decisions for them. It's called Rule Change Day. Of course she's not going to ask them what they want, they aren't making the rules.
I do sometimes feel for the kids because they aren't the ones who sign up.. they get pulled in with their parents. However, I never got the impression that these girls were unhappy with the changes. Andre was the one who acted like a big baby about it, I thought part of his problem was that he didn't like it that the girls were happy to get off the bus. Whenever a family doesn't like the rule changes they always act like they're being asked to donate their left kidney or something.. it's only for 5 days people. Geezus. :rolleyes
