Check your local community college or regional university to see if they offer summer courses that are for the community, specifically young people.
Offerings like coding and creative writing might be of interest, especially if these courses are not offered during the school year.
Take Advantage of Online Resources
There are numerous online resources that are also free. One of the most popular ones that will help your child with his/her math skills is called Khan Academy.
Khan Academy’s offerings are intended to help students with numerous math skills; there is even a specific drop-down menu to help parents navigate the site.
Create a Cerebral Home Environment
To be honest, attacking the summer slide begins at home. If you don’t already have one, start investing in a home library that reflects a wide range of subject areas written by a diverse pool of authors, scholars, and educators.
Regardless of which of these approaches you take, make sure that the only slide that your child enjoys this summer is at the playground or the pool.
