Why kids need a break in the summer

  • A lot of people will soon be going on vacation for the summer. If you look up the word "vacation" in the dictionary, it means having fun and relaxing away from home. When adults don't have to work, they use that time to relax and give their bodies a break. But children also need time off to rest and grow.
    Family vacations are good for your health, according to research. They get you and your family out of your usual routine, introduce you to new cultures and foods, and make you more tolerant.


    Students with intellectual or behavioral disabilities can use the summer break to break through any "walls" they may have built up because they had too much schoolwork. Some kids with special needs find the work and atmosphere in classrooms stressful, so the summer break gives them a chance to unwind and think about what they've learned. This gets them ready for the fall when a new school year starts.

    Summer break is a great time to relax, but it's also a great time to learn and improve your social skills. Kids can learn new things and grow as people on family trips, at the park, and in other places where they can talk to each other in a natural way. This can help them learn about social cues in a way that isn't always the same as what happens in real life in a structured classroom.

    Parents who want their kids to meet new people and learn new things over the summer can ask teachers or therapists for ideas. They can also find fun things to do and workouts to do on their own. It can be easier to go back to school in the fall if you keep up with a stable educational routine.
