Yes, I realize that you have just started your summer holidays. I understand you have probably been looking forward to them for months and months. You are already dreaming about lazing around a pool or playing volleyball at the beach or living it up at a theme park or battling black flies and mosquitos in the woods. I totally get that and plan on enjoying all those things myself. I am not asking you or your child to 'sacrifice' any of your summer. I however, I am suggesting that you take a little bit of your time every day to invest in your child's future. Let's focus on some little, fun things that have the potential to impact your child's school success.
These really are fun things, I promise!
