I came across this article yesterday about balance and checking in midway with summer vacation. I think it is important to check-in with any situation about what is working and not working, to see what changes can be made, potential compromises, and adjustments to the existing routine or schedule. I particularly liked the first tip about boundaries around screen time and the direct benefits of each hour spent outside on improved mental health. I believe boundaries around screen time can be helpful anytime of the year. I hope you find something helpful for your family in the article!

I have been working with parents for over 10 years. I have learned a great deal from them as well as from parenting my own children. It has taught me that parenting is the most trying job there is, requires the support of a village, and with the right supports can be truly rewarding.
