Should You Force Your Child to Read Over the Summer?
Should I introduce them to other worlds, other times, other cultures? After an intense school year full of dark mornings and alarm clocks; afternoons with hours of homework and activities shouldn't I let their brains take a break for three months?
Absolutely not. Imagine a diet that goes like this: Nine months of whey smoothies and dripping sweat on the treadmill. You look great! You deserve a break. Follow it up with twelve weeks of chocolate, pasta, wine, and remote control juggling and indulge in the sweet relief of a break from all the craziness. How do you look then? How do you feel?
