Once you volunteer for anything you get sucked in. I do my darndest not to get sucked in, but sometimes the organization wouldn't exist if I didn't do stuff.

Your observation is painfully accurate.

Most folks, if they volunteer for stuff for their kids, well there is a natural escape hatch(though some of us get suckered into helping kids on a generic scale and fall into the same basic trap you mention)

The problem again, is with kids, there is a natural time when there is a good reason to justify separation, with other activities, it is tougher not ot make it an even longer term commitment, and some pain involved when you do decide to get out.
