Summer Homeschooling Tips

Summer Homeschooling Tips – I did some brainstorming a couple weeks ago about what our goals were for the kids this summer. In addition to typical summer fun, I realize summer is a great time for growth and to maintain an at-home educational curriculum. Our goal isn’t to make our kids’ summer a scholastic boot camp, we just want them to keep some structure to their day and keep them off their phones as much as possible.

Parenting Young Athletes to be Pro Athletes

Private lessons, professional coaches, intensive sports camps, travel teams for 5 year olds… Parenting young athletes to be pro athletes is big business. I’m not sure I want my son to take “the next step” in his youth sports and put a heavy focus into one sport or make his commitment reach beyond a recreational level.

Oakland County Parks Seeks Your Input

SURVEY 1 – CATALPA OAKS. Surveys take 2-5 minutes to complete. Surveys must be completed by 8/5/22. The questions relate to the importance of the features of a successful park and what visitors would enjoy. This is refreshing as initially I was worried the questions were going to be more of a “we’re closing features of this park for good, what’s a cheap thing you’d like to see there in the future?” variety. I’m glad park officials are looking into a “revision” of these parks and not just close it down.
