Transitioning from School Routines to Summer Routines without Going Insane
The school year is coming to an end and that means summer vacation. Don’t let the change get you. Here are some tips to help make a smooth transition without going insane!
1.Take a break from a schedule. Allow your children to spend a few days or a week sleeping late and doing a lot of nothing. Give them time to unwind without having to be a slave to a schedule.
2. Stock up on sunblock and other summer essentials. Sunblock doesn’t retain its efficacy indefinitely. Make sure that yours hasn’t outlived its useful life, and you have it stored where it will be applied daily.
3. Register for summer activities. Ensure that your child doesn’t get shut out of the tennis or baseball clinic that fits her schedule. Sign up early for the activities your child wants to do.
4. Arrange carpools and other transportation. Know how your child is getting to summer camp and other summer activities.
5. Schedule appointments before camp starts. Plan ahead for orthodontist, dentist, and any other doctor appointments your child needs. The perfect time to fit these in is between the end of school and the beginning of camp.
