Helping Parents Survive The Summer

When planning your ministry activities for the summer, don’t just take into account the kids and teenagers you’re working with.  Consider their parents as well.  Parenting in the summer is no picnic.  There are many ways that you can help and encourage parents as they try to engage their kids over the summer months.

As the weather gets warmer and the days get longer, many parents start to feel a sense of dread. With kids out of school and screens becoming a constant fixture in their lives, it can be hard to keep them occupied and away from screens all day. However, there are ways to help parents survive the summer. One way is to create a schedule that includes time for both structured activities and free time. This can help kids stay active and avoid getting bored, while also giving parents some time to relax. Another way to help parents survive the summer is to have fun together as a family. This can involve anything from going on nature walks to playing games together.

When it comes to creating a structured schedule that includes both free time and structured activities. This can help kids to avoid feeling bored or restless, while still allowing them enough time to relax and enjoy the summer months. For structured activities, consider signing them up for classes or Camps that align with their interests. This can give them a chance to explore new hobbies or build on skills they already have. Free time can be anything from playing at the park to watching TV to exploring the backyard. The key is to find a balance that works for your family and that will help keep everyone happy

Spending time together as a family is one of the best ways to create lasting memories. And what better time to do it than during the summer, when the weather is warm and the days are long? There are endless possibilities for fun family activities, from visiting a local amusement park to exploring a new hiking trail. picnicking in the park, playing sports together, or simply spending an afternoon at the beach. Whatever you do, take advantage of the extra hours of daylight and make some cherished memories with your loved ones.

Don’t forget that as a minister, you have a great opportunity to serve parents and kids by creating experiences for them to share together as a family.  Take some time this week to plan an event that involves the whole family this summer at your church!
