Oh the Places You’ll Go!

In Advice for Parents by admin

“Dr. Seuss’s book is the perfect gift for anyone starting a new chapter in life (from pre-school graduation to college graduation). Or in this case, the summer.” -Barb White, LEAD Foundation Board Member and mom of a child with learning disabilities. 

Discussing the summer calendar and allowing your children to chart activities on their own calendar is the perfect start to the summer.

Here’s a list of places to go:

  • Parks
  • Museums
  • Ballgames
  • Zoos

You can also have your children help plan the family vacation. But when it comes to traveling and visiting family, remember this. If you are giving your child a medication break for the summer, consider the schedule. Do you want to go to Grandma’s with a child who has trouble focusing?

One thing not to forget – allow for down time as often as possible. Hope you and your family have a wonderful summer!
