Making The Case For The Summer Slide

Making the case FOR the dreaded summer slide

Remember when summer was all about games, puzzles, playing outdoors, being creative, staying up late, sleeping in, running through sprinklers, watching TV in the a/c, and making new friends in camp? Remember when summer was about childhood exploration, riding bikes, reading books for pleasure, trading baseball cards and enjoying a break from school work?

Me too.

I’m making the case for the summer slide on WHYY’s Newsworks this week because our kids are stressed, exhausted and depressed. We adults aren’t faring much better. Let’s relax and let’s start this summer.
