  • kids and summer schedules

    When our child was younger, loved the lazy days of summer, watching kid play in the sandbox, run through the sprinkler, etc.

    Do you let your kids run barefoot all summer and play?
    or schedule lots of classes/activities?

    Moms, do your children get an hour of activity/exercise per day? That's what kid's need per day....an hour.
    That question was on my kid's P.E. test.

    Guess this figures into first post, on whether you let your kids play outside all summer or schedule them for activities.

      Our child seems to be getting 1-2 hrs activity per day (outside) now that the weather is nice again.

        our kid has barely missed any school this year, so I am giving child a free day and keeping home from school one day for all of us to do something fun (they are hardly doing anything anyway the last two weeks.....no homework even)

        anyone else do this? keep your kid home from school for a family day?

        a pastor in our area wrote on his blog that he does the same thing with his kids but calls it a mental health day (he does 1 day every school yr)
