Children need sleep!!

We pack so much into our summers, because we only have a limited amount of time to get out and enjoy the weather.  The sun rises early and sets late, which can confuse children's schedules.  I sat down with Liz on WCCO about how important sleep is for children.  Click on the link below. https://vimeo.com/user14179445/review/275645536/6e5d013eb6...

Summer Brain Drain

Summer brain drain does affect children from 3-18 Years Old. Research shows that children can lose up to 2-3 months of reading and math skills over the summer.  This takes 3-4 weeks of Back to School to bring them back to where they were at the end of the School Year.   There are many opportunities for parents to keep their children engaged over the summer.  I spoke to both The Jam and WFLD in Chicago about Summer Brain Drain.   Both Interview links are below. https://vimeo.com/user14179445/review/274715019/65be62de82 https://vimeo.com/user14179445/review/272370560/4fa2bf1c6a...
