It’s me, Boy Wonder again. Thanks for reading my last blog on why tweens need cell phones. It made me feel good to have you read it because some people thought I was right.
I’m on summer vacation but it doesn’t feel like I am. My mom has been making my brother and me do worksheets, read, and a lot more stuff around the house. I told her that we deserved a summer vacation without having to do all this stuff and she told me that if I wanted to complain that I should write it down.
Mom note: I agree that kids just wanna have fun during summer and I’m more than OK with that. Summer is a season for children–the smell of fresh cut grass, playing until the street lights come on, chasing after the ice cream man. It’s all perfect and possible and meant to be experienced. That said, getting my kids to exercise those “smarticles” a wee bit over the summer probably won’t kill them. I mean, I suppose it could, but that’s just a chance I’m willing to take.
Are you making your kids learn over the summer?
