Summer is an exciting time for most. With warmer weather, schools out, and vacations in full effect, it’s a great opportunity to spend time with those who you enjoy. Summer is also a good time to create goals for the Fall, and for students to catch up on their academics.
Most kids will increase their screen time over the summer, which can reduce physical activity and social connectedness. While it’s important for kids to relax and enjoy a reduced schedule, it’s still important to establish and follow a routine. By doing so, it will be easier for kids to return to the school year schedule, while also prioritizing their mental health.
