We're counting down the last days of school .
Typically, Summer invites to a lapse in household rules.
For some that means staying up late, sleeping all morning and spending the rest of the day playing video games, watching TV or surfing in the internet.
That's a recipe for brain drain...
While most parents would like to encourage their kids to just go out and do something, it's more helpful to have a list of suggestions handy.
First of all, our favourite couch potatoes must need to earn TV and computer time with outdoor activities.
With no need to get up early, and sunset falling ever later in the evening, it's tempting to alter routines. But it's still important to keep some of them.
Restful children will have more energy and better moods. And that all adds to happy families.
Don't dread Summer vacation.
Before you know it, kids and teenagers will be back in school and tell what great Summer they had.
Happy Summer Holidays...
