It can be easy to anticipate the summer with some anxiety and dread, trying to come up with ideas to combat the heat, deal with cabin fever, and find family cost-friendly activities. Summertime does provide a great opportunity to have bonding experiences and make lasting memories. This can strengthen family relationships and develop your child’s greater sense of self.
