Summer is upon us, and moms (and dads) everywhere are biting their nails about how to keep their kids learning and thriving all summer. As the founders of the Homer learning program for kids ages 2-8, we’re often asked for tips on how parents can fill the summer months with valuable learning experiences for their children.
The long weekend is upon us, and families around the country are packing up – with a lot of excitement and just a little, well, fear. After all, traveling with kids can be as exhausting as it is exhilarating. “Are we there yet? I need to go potty!!! When can we eat?”
Not sure if your family is like mine, but we often seem to go in many different directions at once, and just getting the family around the table for dinner at the same time is deemed an achievement. Right now, however, we are at home and spending more time together than we are used to. To help, I’ve reached out to youth development experts Ann Saylor and Susan Ragsdale to share a good activity with our HOMER moms and dads to keep your family strong and intentional. Susan and Ann are nationally recognized trainers and best-selling authors with a collective 45 years of experience in the field of youth development and leadership. Their mantra “play, live, lead with purpose” is evident in all they do.
