One universal truth is that friendship has the potential to make life sweeter. And it takes a village to raise your child. Sopmetimes, this support system comes virtually–in the form of social media and online support.
What I want to dig into today is how does the need for friendship work in your modern—quite busy—village, and what impact—good or bad—does social media have on friendship goals for both you and for your kids.
Summer slide, the learning loss that happens during the months school is out, is real–but the solution is summer fun, not summer school.
There are plenty of engaging, structured activities a kid can enjoy over the summer but also remember to leave children plenty of free time, too. Relax and let loose–just remember to be safe.
Looking for a few things to do this summer? Take a look at our bucket list! We challenge you to see how many of these fun activities you can do before school starts! Some are common, and others will get your creative juices flowing. All will help you to say YES to a healthy lifestyle and NO to underage drinking!
Ah, summer! How we love you for carefree days and absence of rigid schedules that come with the school year. As we turn off alarm clocks, kids breathe a sigh of relief about the reprieve from nightly homework, and we look forward to time together at home and during summer vacations, it’s the perfect time to seize opportunities to have meaningful conversations to continue learning.
