Tip of the Month – Asset #20 – Time at Home
Young people are frequently out with friends with ‘nothing special to do.’ During the summer, kids may have trouble finding things to do and be more susceptible to friends’ suggestions. Plan lots of activities for your children: home projects, sports, arts & crafts, visits to the library, picnics, take them to work or school with you, volunteering. Check out the list of things to do at www.ncneo.com under the Bored? menu.
