Keeping Your Teens
Engaged & Educated
GREGG JACLIN
Over the Summer
Once summer vacation
arrives, many young
students may be
tempted to abandon all
thoughts of learning and
instead delve into more
recreational pursuits.
While parents should encourage their kids to take some
time to relax and enjoy themselves, it is also important to
promote some continued learning to ensure they are well-
equipped for the year to come. Here are a few ways to
encourage engagement and education over the summer.
Set Goals
One of the best ways to keep your
child learning is to help them set
their own goals for the summer.
They may choose to focus on
developmental goals that prepare
them for college or a specific
career, or they may opt for less
targeted goals such as reading a
certain number of books. Talking
with your child about what
matters most to them will help
you work together to establish
productive, feasible, and appealing
goals for the summer months.
Even if you are still working full time outside
of the home, summer presents a great
opportunity to teach your child life skills that
might not be fully addressed in school.
From grocery shopping, cooking, cleaning,
and more, parents have acquired a massive
amount of essential skills that they can pass
onto their children, and summer nights
could be useful for passing them along.
Build Skills
Prepare for Employment
Depending on the age of your teen, it may be worthwhile to help them
prepare for employment and understand what is necessary to apply for a
job. You can work with them to build out their resume and even apply for a
summer or after-school position. In a similar fashion, you may look for
volunteer opportunities with your teen to give them community experience
as well as something to bolster their resume and college applications.
Many students end up forgetting the
things they learn during the school
year following the end of the
semester, but a lot of classes depend
on prior knowledge. Because of this,
parents would do well to help their
teens integrate some review sessions
throughout the summer to keep their
minds fresh and agile. An added
benefit of this practice is that your
student will be equipped with new
study techniques for the future.
