Happy Summer! Time for kids to play…

The last paragraph of this article lays it all out so clearly: “Parents, if you really want to give your kid a head start on coming school year, relinquish some of that time you have earmarked for lessons or sports camp and let your children play. That’s it. Just play. Grant them time free from your ulterior motives and carefully planned educational outcomes. Let them have dominion over their imaginary kingdoms while their evil dragons, white wizards, marauding armies, and grand battles for supremacy unfurl according to their whims and wills.”

When you think of a “golden summer moment” from your childhood, what does it involve? I’d put money on: the outdoors, free play and freedom from schedules and time constraints. Give your children the gift of a summer with lots of time for golden moments. Start today.
