Is your child looking forward to summer break? Most students will say they are excited about be- ing out of school during the summer months. How- ever, others might say they are bored or worried about what they will do during this free time. When children are at school, they are told when one activity begins and an- other activity ends; this makes transitions easi- er for them. Most children enjoy knowing the plan for their days, so it may help to structure summer activities as well. Some helpful ways to en- sure that summer is fun, ac- tive, and relaxing include: • Schedule family meet- ings to discuss activities that all family members might enjoy. These meet- ings will help identify a rou- tine all family members un- derstand and appreciate. The schedule should include both indoor and outdoor ac- tivities to provide children with a balance of exercise and relaxation. • Create and maintain a daily schedule that can be accessed by all family mem- bers. This document could be located on the refrigera- tor or in any family commu- nication area in the home. Family members can iden- tify the times of each activ- ity and the location of each family member during these times. This will alleviate any confusion regarding activi- ties for the day. • Be consistent with fam- ily expectations, rules, and consequences when chil- dren are not following the rules appropriately. When children are acknowledged and praised for following the rules consistently they will enjoy working hard to do their best. Most children want to know that their par- ents are paying attention to whether or not they are fol- lowing the rules. • Obtain support from family members, friends, or daycare providers. Most people need help during stressful times in their lives. Acknowledging that this help is needed will em- power the parents to make the best choices for their children. Self-care is very important. Parents need to spend time with friends and family members to maintain friendships, have fun, relax, and take care of their own needs. • Plan playdates so chil- dren can have contact with their friends from school. This connection is very important because many children miss their school friends during time off. Con- tinuing these friendships may help alleviate some of the stress children experi- ence when they return to school in the fall. • Remind children when the first day of school is get- ting closer. Start moving up their bedtime to ease the ad- justment when they return to their school schedule. By taking time to prepare for summer break, both par- ents and children will be able to have a safe, fun, re- laxing, and enjoyable sum- mer vacation that will be re- membered for many years to follow.
