Summer is here, and the cries of “I’m bored” and “there’s nothing to do” have already started, barely days into your kid’s supposed favorite time of the year. It’s an annual ritual; the wave of excitement for the coming long days and warm night soon turns to the dread of the inevitable return to the classroom. During this time, days and nights are often filled with activities; from vacations to sports, camp-outs to pool parties. And quite often, days are also filled with television, video games, and sometimes innocent mischief.
Parents often struggle during this time. While kids may be quick to forget all about school, parents understand that classes return faster than everyone realizes, and the first month of school can often be filled with re-learning everything that has already been taught. Kids suffer when they come back to school and must go through this period of “re-education”. Wouldn’t it be better to have a child that is ready and prepared to start the new school year off on the right foot, ready to absorb new knowledge?
