Boulder, Colorado (PressExposure) May 16, 2007 -- The summer presents new challenges for today's parents who are trying to manager their kids time. "What many parents donât realize is that there are many family activities that are fun, easy, and inexpensive!", Says Danielle Germain, Contractor for Hopscotch Technology and author of a newly-released article that gives families new ideas on how to spend quality time together especially in the summer months.
The article, titled "National Family Month", presents alternative family activities to TV and video games for children this summer. Today's kids watch over 30 hours of TV and video games per week. That's more time than they spend on any other waking activity.
National Family month, an annual celebration that begins on Motherâs Day and ends on Fatherâs Day, was established to encourage family relationships and focus on developing healthy, confident kids. National Family Month is scheduled during the early summer just as kids are finishing the school year. This time of year presents a new challenge to parents, as they try to manage all the free time that is now available to their children.
