Another school year is rounding up and it’s time to start thinking about what to do and where to go this summer with your children. It can be a stressful time, the children have lots of time to occupy and we as parents still need to keep working and going about our regular schedule. It’s a lot of pressure on parents. We want our children to be looked after and not spending their entire vacation in front of a TV or video game screen.
If you are looking for a list of options that will keep your child busy, entertained, learning and active this summer keep reading to find out how.
The summer break is a long one and often students get back into school in the fall and spend a good portion of first month relearning things they learnt last year. Now is the perfect time to capitalize on maintaining what they have studied so far and to pick up the slack on subjects they were struggling in. Finding a tutor can be a great way to keep your child on the straight and narrow. Tutoring doesn’t just have to be academics either. Consider hiring a tutor to teach your young one how to play an instrument or learn a language. One on one learning time with a tutor is an excellent way for your child to learn, and interact this summer.
It’s important for children to be active and outdoors. At summer camp a child learns a lot about friendships, social skills and discover a lot about themselves. Placing your boy or girl in a summer camp is a fun for them and convenient for you. Summer camps can be focused on an interest such as sports, music, religion or academics. Speak with your children and discuss the prospect of learning a skill while making friends and doing some fun activities.
Sports or Leagues
The summer is a perfect for experimenting with new sports and hobbies. Your child may discover something they are brilliant at. Just like summer camps, friendship and teamwork skills will be developed when your child plays sports. It doesn’t have to be competitive, just something to get them out of their comfort zone and experience new activities. Perhaps your child isn’t very physically active, there or many leagues like chess or art or science clubs that children can participate in.
