I recently came upon a meme of a sad girl with the words across the chest of the tee-shirt she wore which said: She’s standing on the line between giving up and seeing how much more she can take.

Yay! School is officially out for the summer but let’s not forget that learning is an ongoing process by which things need to be reiterated and reinforced. We still need to reinforce what our children has learned during the last school year to create a smooth transition into the next school year. A child that stays ready doesn’t have to get ready, right?

Kids don’t always know what’s best for them (even though they always think they do); so, as a good parent, it’s your job to guide them and help them make the most of their gap year. This doesn’t mean you should force your child to do something they don’t want to, but simply introduce them to different options.
