Many thanks to Ellen Briggs of Kid Kritics for hosting me on her radio show, “Better Food Choices.”  We had a great talk about creative summer planning ideas – everything from sharing childcare with friends to choosing camp (day or overnight) to planning fun family vacations to creative parenting tactics for the summer months.  Click here for a link to the segment.

Here are some of the many parenting tips we discussed…

– Consider county camps – often reasonable and flexible.

Team with other parents to take kids on fun outings.

Tour camps in advance if possible – a definite ingredient for success, especially with overnight camp.

Stay tuned…more to follow on summer camp ideas!
