Grow and Learn!
If your child seems to grow overnight this season, your eyes aren’t playing tricks: Children actually do grow faster in the spring and summer than at other times.
Parents tell us that summer’s slower pace offers opportunities for family members to connect, learn and grow. Summer is also the perfect time to develop the habit of actively growing and learning to help prevent “summer slide” and prepare for the return to school in fall.
This Parenting Guide takes a closer look at developmental readiness, offering ideas for growth (through games!) and how-to’s for yoga poses that build both minds and bodies. For National Preparedness month this September, we have included a guide to help your family prepare for how to respond to an earthquake — before, during and after they occur — in Los Angeles County. We also take a closer look at just how much fatherhood has changed over the years as we continue the Father’s Day celebration.
As ever, this Parenting Guide offers recipes, activities, book ideas, special events, coupons and more for busy families. Here’s to a season of growing brains and bodies, and learning something new every day!
