When the days get longer, and the sun gets warmer, kids start to feel the thrill of summer approaching.

Summer represents a long-awaited break from school and the freedom of having control over it. After months of homework and tests, they finally get a chance to relax, hang with their friends, and do fun stuff like going to the beach or heading out to the lake.

Summer is also a perfect time for kids to explore their interests. From sports camps to music programs, there's something for everyone. They can learn new skills, meet new friends, and make lasting memories.

Plus, the summer months are perfect for outdoor adventures. Swimming, hiking, biking, and playing sports are all great ways to get some exercise, fresh air, and sunshine. Who doesn't love a good game of frisbee or catch with their buddies?

As summer approaches, parents often find themselves facing a new challenge - balancing their children's summer activities with the need for relaxation and family time.

The holidays have come to an end, and the kids are returning to school. After all the excitement of Christmas (with some rest mixed in, hopefully), students should, in theory, be ready to start a new semester strong and finish the school year well. However, you may find that they are somewhat sluggish as they attempt to get back into the swing of things. 

You may ask yourself if they had too much screen time or too many sweets, but the simple fact is: it’s challenging to go back to school or work after being out for several days or weeks. 

If your child’s first semester was difficult, they may feel a sense of dread about the new semester. However, parents have an opportunity to help students wipe the slate clean and embrace the second half of the school year.
