Now that it's summer, can I take a break from helping my child with their education?

From Mrs. Pizzo's Workshop

A: It is appropriate to take a rest from the structure of schooling or (in today's normal) at-home-learning but remember children are ALWAYS learning.

Their brains absorb an astronomical amount of information each day and processing that information is a part of their growth and development. From language to creativity to social skills and the sciences, a child's education is continuous and varied. Summers are wonderful for slowing the pace of life and focusing on family but keep your child motivated by introducing new challenges to their learning with variety and within the structure of summer fun and togetherness.
