Show Notes

Most of us parents want summer to be flexible and fun for our kids, yet we don’t want that to mean they have complete freedom for their brains to wither away in front of a screen all day. Click here to read the full BLOG POST related to this podcast, containing links to All that was discussed in this week's podcast. Abby & Emma join me on the podcast to share some ideas that are better than screen time! 

Suddenly the realization of having only 18 or less summers with our growing kids makes the summer days so much more valuable.  It’s time to be intentional. 

Yes, summer should be full of leisure, fun, and rejuvenation but what it should not be is wasted.  Summer can be relaxing and developmental all at the same time, but it will require a little brainstorming and planning to fit both of those aspects into the limited 8-10 weeks we’ve got.

I'm going to share my list with you and you can pick and choose the activities you think would work well at your house AND maybe it will help you think of activities that are JUST RIGHT for YOUR FAMILY!

Don’t worry, these activities are not all parent-centered activities.  After all, our kids need time alone just as much as we adults crave time alone.  This post is about making the most of your child’s summer days.

I would encourage you to pick out which of the following activities must be completed each day by your child before they get in front of a screen for leisure.
