Are you looking for a way to keep your child occupied this summer? This post on Psychology Today discusses the merits of service learning as a way to keep kids engaged over the summer. The post also discusses ways that parents can make the experience even more meaningful for their child, which include tips on how to have an open discussion about volunteering with your child and a discussion on the importance of making a commitment to help others.
