Episode Description

The last six months have been challenging enough for many children—learning at home, missing friends, staying indoors. Now that summer is here, your children are ready to bust out and have some fun. No doubt the familiar blue glow and video game sound effects are already flooding your child’s room. How is learning and family fun going to compete with iPads, TVs, and computers?

The unstructured days of summer make it hard to balance your child’s academics and free time. Listen and learn from Ann Dolin, M.Ed.. Competing with the newest tech games and digital platforms seems impossible, but there are lots of tips and strategies you can use to focus and engage your child throughout summer.
