It’s summer time! Guess what? It doesn’t have to be boring. How can it be when there are dozens of things to do out there?
Being with the kids in the house at this time can be challenging for both parents and children. It’s at this point that parents consider summer school for their children. This improves children’s learning and keeps them prepped for the next school year.

If not, they can be involved in various activities at home.
