School is out, summer is upon you and you have "only" 66 days in which to keep your child(ren) occupied. What do you do? Where can you go? How can you make it easy on your pocketbook?
School’s out – the daily pace changes. Evenings stretch later and mornings aren’t so harried. Initially, this can be great. For some families, the situation gets old quickly. Togetherness 24/7 can be quite taxing. Emotions get out of hand and sibling rivalry sky-rockets. Expecting our children to play together all the time is unrealistic, especially if they are out of practice. We feel like yelling, “Can’t you two just get along?!” Well, maybe they can’t.
