Wouldn’t it be great to get your tween or teen to use some of their summer to work on a Genius Project that builds on a passion or something they’re curious about?
So it’s the start of summer, again, and everyone is tired. But, you’re dreading your teens spending yet another summer in front of the TV, phones, and video games. When kids are too old for summer camp, but too young for a job or internship, it can be a real challenge to find a way to keep kids busy in something meaningful that they will learn from. As our own kids have gotten older, our agreement is that they can stay home as long as they spend scheduled time working on something meaningful. Last year they worked on their skills for tennis and dance, and this year we’re adding the idea of a Genius Project.
