If you want something a bit more laid back and perhaps a bit more inexpensive, you can always go camping. There are a few different ways to go about this. You do not have to pitch tents and cook over a campfire if you do not want to, though that is certainly an option. There are campgrounds everywhere, and some have cabins for rent that make camping a bit easier while still having the great experience of being outdoors and spending time together as family. Some companies offer RV rentals, which can be great as well. These options can be the most relaxing choices for summer family vacations.
You race out of the driveway and down the road, only to come to a complete stop because of traffic. What seems like hours later, you drop your child off at school with a quick wave and either scramble to get to work on time or speed to the grocery store to start your list of errands for the day. Whew! It’s only nine o’clock in the morning and you’ve already spent a lot of time, energy, and gas performing your daily routine.
Focus on building relationships within your family. Treat these people as the most important people in the world to you – because they are! Eat together, play together, study together, giggle together, learn new things together.
You have to learn to organize your time to get the most out of every day and in the same instance you have to “Be Good To You”. The majority of our time is caught up in daily rituals. Get up, get the children off to school, go to work, come home and prepare dinner, get the children to bed then we get up and do it over and over again.
Please hear me carefully. I am NOT telling you to baby your children. Instead, I am asking you to consider creating a culture of family that is so strong and vital that you might find you have fewer overall school problems and what challenges you are faced with will respond more effectively with the consequences you choose.
Show your interest in his hobbies and school activities, among others. Encourage him to get involved in his school clubs, sports and other things that he may show interest in. You can also regulate and monitor what he watches on the television. See to it that he doesn’t watch too much violence or those that promote gangs and riots. Regulate the sites that he can visit on the internet.
By having a grading system set up before classes begin, you will not be trying to keep papers and grades organized haphazardly. After all, you and your child need the feedback from their class work to know how well the lessons are actually sticking.
