The summer break ushers in months of freedom for children, but the lack of structure can do more harm than good. Healthy habits of discipline and self-motivation that were developed throughout the year disintegrate. Keep your kids engaged and confident with these timeless suggestions:
Enliven kids’ minds by reading and discussing books together. Choose works with themes, such as the American Civil War, that correlate to places you can actually visit. Reading programs at libraries and bookstores can also boost academic performance.
Developing your child’s inner calculator is an invaluable life skill. Ask your child to help keep household expense records, such as groceries and gasoline. When shopping, teach your child how to determine the best price deals and to calculate distances when traveling.
Are your kids gaining weight during the summer? Keep the sedentary lifestyle at bay by enrolling them in summer sports, visiting museums or planning daily outdoor activities, such as night strolls for the entire family.
