It may look a little different than before, but summer is here! I realize the challenge it has been over the last few months settling into a “new normal.” However, life is beginning to slowly open back up around us and there are things you can do to help your kids adjust to summer.

Routines and Rules are important ingredients to helping your child thrive over the summer months. Simple things like daily chores, a curfew, limiting screen time, and a consistent sleep time and wake up time are all helpful habits to retain a routine.  

Also, as you plan for your kids activities, don’t forget to include yourself in the fun. There is no greater investment than the time you spend with your family. Your kids are watching you and the example you set. What they will learn from watching you over the summer will be carried into their future. 

We are hoping for a happy, healthy summer for you and your family. For more information visit us at
