The end of the school year is a date set on the calendar for parents and children. & iquest;Why ? Some, children are happy to have almost three months off. The other, parents, weeks ago with the worry of knowing that their children will make during the summer. This period involves a break from the usual routine of families. Clearly, during the year, have a marked habits help family life. Even children are safer knowing that will make all day.

Many professionals, among which we included, are in favor of maintaining the patterns that are held during the year. & iquest;And routines are needed?¿Same as for the whole course ? It is not necessary. You have to identify what the needs of children and the rest of the family during the holidays. & iquest;And does that mean ? That parents should consider these needs to establish, if necessary, new ones.

First you have to maintain schedules. Obviously, being vacation can be more flexible. But at no time should be lost sight of its compliance. That is, you need a marked to go to sleep, to get up, to eat, to study and play schedule. At this point a second message: the planning of activities. From September to June the children most of the day is spent in school. Now¿, that will make for all these hours ? Some parents put their hands on his head at the possibility that children closed the day at home watching TV or spend playing console and computer. So many choose to include them in pairs, colonies, or campus.

In addition, it is necessary to continue to have the responsibilities and obligations in relation to their age. Responsibility and autonomy must be worked all year. Likewise, we must not put aside the learning of children. For this reason, schools recommends summer books. It is also very important for parents to be present during the holidays, both academically and personally. It's a good time to strengthen the bond between parents and children also share moments of leisure.
