Every end of the academic year the headaches return to make work schedules compatible with the children's vacations. What can they do with so much free time?
Here are some ideas to keep the kids busy and make their long vacations more bearable.
While many children play and go with their parents to enjoy the pool every afternoon, many others have to go to the academy. When parents work, children's free time is often organized in extracurricular classes. For some children, at first this can be a drama, because it is difficult for them to understand where the justice is when others are having fun and they have to go to schools because their parents have to go to work. However, they usually end up learning to value all the knowledge they have acquired and to have fun. Here are a few ideas for organizing the summer:
1. Grandparents: Many families have the help of grandparents, who take care of the little ones. But, although it is a way to build beautiful intergenerational relationships and expand the family nucleus, grandparents will also need their free time so we can look for other alternatives to combine and manage our children's time.
2. Summer camps: One of the most popular possibilities is summer camps. They offer a wide variety of activities, urban or in nature, through which children share adventures and build friendly relationships with others their age. Most discover sports or hobbies they have never tried and learn values such as companionship, solidarity or self-esteem. Social skills are reinforced and it is a good way for both parents and children to change their daily routines and recharge their batteries.
3. Language academies: Another alternative is the language academies that offer different methodologies so that learning is not merely superficial, but rather that the language can be integrated more deeply. The important thing is that our child has fun while learning, since relaxation in the face of study favors the opening of cognitive channels, according to one of the theories about childhood learning. How easy it is for our brain to create a network that interprets and processes the information that reaches it will depend on how learning is approached. For example, some of the patterns that can favor are self-reliance, emotional intelligence, environments not classified as "study" or "obligations" and observation.
4. Find moments of rest: In addition, we cannot forget about rest, reconcile leisure with homework and, very importantly, develop and enhance the strengths that are hidden. Proposing to write your adventure book during the summer can be a way to stimulate reading and writing in an effective and fun way.
As parents, let's not forget to take advantage of the summer months to introduce values that the rest of the year costs us more to educate as the concept of responsibility. For me, responsibility means the ability to learn things to give answers to, grow by evaluating the options and analyzing the consequences from the values that we teach them at home.
And let's not forget to give them a voice. Even if they are the little ones in the house, introduce them into conversations, let them comment and helping them build something in common will not make them feel like we are just looking to keep them busy all day. Let's enjoy free time together and take advantage of the fact that on vacation it is much easier to learn what is not learned at school: life.
