Summertime is around the corner in the living isn’t always easy. You don’t get too far into summer break before parents begin to hear the dreaded “I’m bored!”. It can be difficult to keep our children entertained during the summer months. After a while children and parents alike begin to get on each other’s nerves.
Although our children are homeschooled, we still have the same struggle. Most of our extracurricular activities, club meetings, Bible studies, and other school year events take a break during the summer months to give everyone an opportunity to travel and have a break from the busyness of life. That’s one reason I’ve transitioned to more of a year-round school schedule for our homeschoolers. Summer break is simply too long to attempt to retain what they’ve learned, and it leads to boredom and poor habits and behavior.
Over the years, I’ve learned a few tricks and steps to take to save my sanity over the summer. I thought I’d share them with y’all today on the Christian Homemaking – Raising Homemakers blog.
