Summer is almost here. Are you ready for it?
I have never been one to over-plan my life but I have found schedules very helpful in keeping things on track. My children have become used to their pandemic school routine and now, with that routine coming to a close, I have to prepare a new, summertime routine so that the never ending “I’m bored” and “There’s nothing to do” doesn’t completely overwhelm me as a parent.
Enter the helpful advice from verywellmind.com and Keath Low, on How to Create a Summer Schedule for a Child with ADHD.
Now, keeping in mind that we are still in a pandemic and some restrictions do apply, the ideas will be helpful in creating activities together. Because even if the stores aren’t open, there are always crafts that can be created from the stuff we have in our homes! Have a camera? Practice digital photography. Have a computer? Print off some puzzles, colouring pictures and games to play!
Most importantly, if you haven’t scheduled it in already, allow yourselves time to relax and enjoy the warmer weather.
