7 Strategies to Help Children Maintain Structure During the Summer

While summer promises freedom and leisure for many children, maintaining a sense of structure amidst the relaxed atmosphere can contribute significantly to their well-being. Though we encourage kids to embrace the joys of summer, we understand that consistency and routine provide a comforting framework for their daily lives. By upholding certain routines and expectations, such as set bedtimes and chores, parents can facilitate a smoother transition back to the school routine in the fall while reinforcing the notion that structure and enjoyment can coexist harmoniously.

Here are seven actionable ways to support this balance:

1. Establish consistent bedtimes, wake-up times, and daily routines, maintaining a sense of stability throughout the summer months.
2. Maintain household rules and chore charts to uphold expectations, allowing for flexibility while ensuring children remain aware of responsibilities.
3. Display a visible schedule for children to anticipate activities, fostering a sense of predictability and reducing surprises.
4. Encourage regular meal times to ensure proper nutrition and hydration, while also structuring the day into manageable segments.
5. Engage children in summer activities like camps or sports to promote physical activity and socialization, which often come with their own schedules.
6. Ease back into the school routine gradually before the academic year begins, ironing out any challenges or adjustments in advance.
7. Above all, prioritize quality time and enjoyment with your children, creating lasting memories amidst the structure and routine of summer.
Thank you to everybody who came out to our first annual

Restful Minds: The Critical Link Between Sleep and Children’s Mental Health

Sleep is crucial for children's mental health and overall well-being, facilitating essential processes like memory consolidation and emotional regulation. During sleep, especially during non-REM stages, the brain strengthens neural connections, aiding learning and information retention. Insufficient sleep can hinder memory consolidation, leading to difficulties in acquiring new skills. Additionally, adequate sleep supports emotional regulation, helping children manage mood and behavior effectively, while sleep deprivation can increase emotional reactivity and mood disorders risk. Furthermore, sufficient sleep is vital for regulating impulses and attention, promoting appropriate behavior and cognitive function in children. Parents and caregivers can foster healthy sleep habits by establishing consistent routines and prioritizing adequate sleep, contributing to children's mental and physical well-being.

Explore further insights into the correlation between sleep and children’s mental health in the informative how-to guide authored by On Our Sleeves Behavioral Health Experts.
