Avoiding Summer Brain Drain
No one will deny that a young brain needs to rest after a long school year, but most parents and teachers agree summer vacation is too long a period to go without any mental activity. Many teachers complain that the first month or two of the school year is spent bringing kids to where they were at the end of the previous year. The good news is, you can help remedy this problem. By making sure your kids do some light mental activity throughout the summer, you can assure they start the year ahead of the curve.
