But that doesn’t mean an end to learning. It may be a
time for a different kind of learning, such as learning a new sport, skill or job.
Here are some ways your teen can keep learning this summer:
• Brush up on a skill. Encourage your teen to practice, at least once or twice a week, any skill she’s in danger of losing over the summer. This could be keyboarding or the latest math problems she learned.
• Take a class. Together with your teen, explore classes available at your local recreation center, community center or community college. Urge your teen to try one. Financial assistance may be available if you need it.
• Teach a class. Is your teen a great swimmer? Is she good at crafts? Again, check out places in your community that offer classes. But see if your teen can be a teacher this time.
• Read. Visit the library together. See who can read the most books this summer.
