This week is the first in a series of discussions about the essentials of summer: adventures, fun and family time. Make the most of your summer by tuning in to hear our experts share tips on making it the best one ever!
Parents often wonder how much to allow children to relax and play in the summer, and how much to make sure their brains continue to be engaged and learning. While the right path is likely different for each child, there is data that speaks to this balance of fun and learning. Join us this week as we talk with a career educator who will share her insights on the best mix of summer fun.
