Week 1 of Pursue More Summer Camp
Summer is just around the corner, and as a parent, you may be thinking about how to fill your daughter's free time. While it's tempting to let your child lounge around all day or spend hours on screen time, it's important to remember that summer is a great opportunity to help your child develop essential social-emotional skills that can benefit them for years to come.
First off, let's talk about teen mental health. According to the National Institute of Mental Health, approximately 3.2 million adolescents aged 12 to 17 in the United States had at least one major depressive episode in 2019. That's a staggering number, and it underscores the importance of giving your child the tools they need to cope with stress and build resilience.
One way to do this is by seeking out quality experiences for your child over the summer. Whether it's a summer camp, an internship, or a volunteer opportunity, these experiences can help your child develop important social-emotional skills like communication, teamwork, and problem-solving.
Here are a few tips and ideas to consider as you make your summer plans:
Encourage your child to try something new: Whether it's a new hobby, a new sport, or a new job, trying something new can help your child build confidence and resilience. Plus, it's a great way to meet new people and make new friends.
Foster social connections: Social connections are essential for teen mental health. Encourage your child to spend time with friends, join a club or team, or volunteer in the community. These activities can help teens build social skills, develop empathy, and feel a sense of belonging.
Look for a summer camp that focuses on social-emotional learning: There are plenty of summer camps out there that focus on developing social-emotional skills like communication, leadership, and teamwork. These camps can be a great way for your child to have fun while also learning important life skills.
Encourage your child to spend time offline: While it's tempting to let your child spend hours on their phone or computer, it's important to remember that too much screen time can have negative effects on mental health. Encourage your child to spend time outside, read a book, or spend time with friends in person.
Remember, summer is a great opportunity to help your child develop essential social-emotional skills that can benefit them for years to come. By seeking out quality experiences and encouraging your child to try new things, you can help them build confidence, resilience, and a strong sense of self. So, don't let summer slip away – start planning today!
