Why summer is the best time for your child to catch up this school year

Do you know how much the summer slide affects your teen or tween?

New research has discovered that your teen can lose up to 50% of their learning gains during the summer months due to summer learning loss!

That number is crazy!!!!

No wonder our kids are struggling in school! Every time they start a new school year, they are starting further and further behind! If every year starts off with our kids playing “catch up”, then how can we expect our kids to get ahead and do well in school?

The best way for us to help prevent the summer learning loss in our kids is to help them not fall behind this summer by keeping their minds sharp, active, and challenged. And the BEST way to do that is to provide them with a good summer resource!

What is the summer slide?

The official term for the summer slide is the Summer Learning Loss. With a name like that, you know it’s got to be not good! This term refers to the amount of learning, academics, and knowledge our kids lose through months of not having a daily mental challenge, like school provides. This learning loss is actually really harmful for our kids overall learning.

If your teen or tween struggled in school last year, it’s likely that they felt like they might have been a bit behind in learning. Well, with the summer learning loss, your child may start the next school year even further behind then when they finished this past school year.

So they are starting off doubly behind!

I do NOT want that for your child!

What to do?

So what can we as parents do to help our kids not fall behind this summer?

We can find the right tools and resources to better prepare our kids with the right learning challenges so that they can be fully equipped for the start of the new school year!

That is why summer is the BEST time for your child to catch up for the school year! Because while every other student is suffering from the summer learning loss, your child will be learning more, and will be better prepared for the start of the new school year!
