You may be envisioning relaxed time, more family connection and more fun. In reality as summer unfolds, parents say there are lots of conflicts about screen time, hassling kids to read more, maybe play outside more and in the end feeling like you somehow missed out on what seemed in June to be a wonderful opportunity. Ironically all that “freedom” can be confusing and even stressful. Working parents feel there isn’t enough time and at home parents feel overwhelmed with possibilities. Let’s consider a new approach – make a big, positive PLAN with your family. This conversation will give you the tools to:
- Make a plan for summer that includes everyone’s goals.
- Discuss daily routines and how they might stay the same or change. These might include family play time, screen time, reading time, other activities.
- Make the most of your time together through playfulness and meaningful conversations.
