Tip of the Week to share with parents
It’s important for children to have free time to play around in the backyard, goof-off, and generally be a kid. But let’s face it; time spent in the car is usually wasted time.
Some people use extended car trips as an opportunity for their children to break out the DS. But car time can also be used strategically and purposefully.
Think of it as carschooling.
Carschooling is one of the easiest ways to expand on your child’s education. You have a captive audience on your hands, so you might as well use that to your advantage!
Here are some educational CDs for all ages that might be available at your local library. So take out your library card and put these treasures on hold!
