Let your kid be a kid!
“If you’re like many parents, your child’s spare time may already be booked up with “enriching activities,” writes says Levine, author of Teach Your Children Well: Parenting for Authentic Success. “Maybe you’re shipping him off to a rigorous math or computer camp designed to give him an academic edge. Or perhaps she’ll be living at home but attending an educational day camp or an intensive sports camp. At the very least you’re using the break from school to double up on her (already daunting) schedule of gymnastics and dance classes, supplemented with an ambitious reading list.”
