: My kids spent the summer of playing video games and watching TV. How do I make sure they're ready for school? Answer
: The single greatest inoculation against summer slippage is regular reading. Most kids slide a little, but the ones who read a lot go back to school better prepared for all subjects.
Frequent skill-building sessions throughout the summer help, too. So get thee to the library, and try these math and science programs and reading and writing boosters.
Finally, avoid electronics before bedtime, as they can interfere with a good night's sleep. — Common Sense Media The opinions expressed are solely those of the author and do not necessarily reflect the views of Comcast.
