Summer is a great break from the norm, a change of pace from school and routine. The schedules are more relaxed and it gives you time to soak in the slower pace of life with your family.
For some, it is a stressful time of the siblings spending more time than usual together and driving the parents crazy with, 'what do we do next' questions, boredom, and quarreling amongst the troops.
Fortunately, with a little pre-planning,
your children can go from surviving to thriving.
This sweet time together
allows them to develop a friendship without the distractions of the world.
I have seen my kids go from arguing and fighting over 'mine and yours' to wanting to play together and have true companionship.
