Kids & Summer Stress: Planning for Summer Fun Can Help Make It Happen! by Pepi Silverman
While summer offers great opportunities for fun and recreation, for many children the changes in routine can result in stress rather than relaxation. In order to provide children with the joys of summer, create a game plan:
- Mornings set that stage for the day.
- Help kids to set personal goals.
- Plan the day.
- Play is important.
- Maintain bedtime.
By providing children with the structure that supports daily performance, the enjoyment of summer can be achieved.
