Balance is the key word here. Unless a child is struggling in his/her respective grade level, it's a huge burden to expect too much acedemically from a child in Elementary School! They are nearing the end of childhood, give them Summer memories of fun and learning from camping trips, bike rides with Mom and Dad, local trips to Hidden Villa and the Zoo. If you open the Geography book for young kids, why not add visiting some of the accessible places of discussion. Plane trips or car trips to far away (or not so far away) places are where the real memories and lasting impressions are made.

i never ever did more than watch television during all my summer breaks from school. no child or parent should be worried about this so called "brain drain."
