How Are You Going to Keep Your Kids Occupied This School Summer Holiday?

When I was a child the school summer holidays seemed to fly by. However for my parents I'm sure it seemed like an eternity. My friends and I occupied the days by going fishing, riding our cycles and generally enjoying being outside with the sun on our backs, british weather permitting of course! Not for us watching TV and laying around the house. No doubt, our parents wanted to know where we were going and what we were doing but they didn't have too worry too much. It was a fairly innocent age before 24/7 news and the start of advertising aggressively to children. Two things have happened that have changed the way children occupy their free time and neither can be attributed to them. Firstly, parents are rightly or wrongly more worried about letting their children out of their sight. This is due to the stories on the news of children being harmed or abducted by strangers. This unfortunately has always happened and statistics show that cases of this nature have not increased. What has changed is that it is reported alot more on the News channels that were not around when I was young.

Involvement of Grandparents in Childcare Breeds Happiness in Children

Various studies have been conducted in the past in order to understand the impact of outside factors on the growth of a child, one of them being the role played by the grandparents. According to a recent study by researchers at the Institute of Education, London and Oxford University, bringing up children in an active involvement from the side of grandparents, cause them to be happier that those who have been deprived of their special care. The study showed an interesting link between adolescent well-being and active participation of grandparents. As adolescence is the most crucial phase in the life of a child and it can be the starting point of creation of a divide between the parents and children. If a child's parents are working, then the possibility of the child getting alienated increases even more. At such a time the grandparents can prove to be of great help by being a constant source of support and proper guidance. The researchers also made it clear that mere closeness will have no effect on the child keeping in mind the nuclear families in which the grandchildren meet their grandparents during holidays and vacations.

Help Your Student Stay Sharp This Summer!

Summer is a time for fun--a time to take a break and slow down. It's also a time when children can lose valuable academic skills that they have built up throughout the school year. Duke University researchers conducted a review of studies that show that students' achievement score do indeed decline between spring and fall, and that this loss of skills is greater for math than it is in reading. The good news is that there are steps that families can take to limit the loss of skills their children experience over the summer, while still having fun! You can also get help with this through the use of a teacher or tutor. Consider these ideas when thinking about how you'll encourage your child to learn this summer: Find teaching opportunities in everyday life. Reinforce math concepts by cooking with your child, building a birdhouse, or setting up a lemonade stand. Watch the news or read the newspaper together and discuss current events. Summer is a great time to encourage reading! Allow your child to find reading material that complements his interests: wildlife or sports magazines, mystery novels, comics and graphic novels are all great ways to foster a love of literacy.

Bring Back the Classic Games to Your Child's Birthday Party

Remember your favorite birthday games of the past? What party didn't play a few rounds of "musical chairs" or "pin the tail on the donkey?" My personal favorites were the "spoon race" and good old fashioned "treasure hunts." Lately, when I go with my children to birthday parties, games for the most part are not part of the program. If a child is having their party at home, it seems that you are more likely to find a bounce house or an entertainer. Birthday party themes and activities do tend to conform to what everyone else is doing. Maybe classic games are out of style? Classic games may not feel fresh and new for parents, but from personal experience, I can tell you that they are still a blast for kids! My son turned six last week. The children made a picture frame craft and then we finished the party with some classic games. My daughter and I came up with an elaborate treasure hunt, complete with aged maps, shovels and lots of dirt. I have never seen a group of kindergartener's so excited!
