How to give your kids an awesome summer

You can almost feel it in the air-well, not really, given the current unpredictability of climate change-summer is fast approaching. Kids are gearing up for their final exams. School bags are getting nonchalantly tossed around like pizza dough, with hopes of being replaced with new ones for next school year. Swimsuits are slowly seeing the light of day after being stashed away for ages. In between chants of “No more classes, no more books, no more teachers’ dirty looks!”, we parents try our hardest to contain that excitement and redirect that energy into something more productive, and less destructive. Out there is a wide range of summer activities for kids to choose from, so we shouldn’t pull out our hairs just yet:

1. MILO Best- tried and tested, this summer sports clinic has been around since time immemorial. Some of our popular local basketball stars (and not-so-popular neighborhood hunks) have emerged from this program. Their summer sports clinic offers a varied selection of activities, ranging from basketball to martial arts.
2. Cooking- perfect for the budding young chef. With a spatula in hand, our little one will surely have fun whipping up yummy desserts in no time.
3. Dance- develop grace, rhythm and form in your kid as he or she learns basic or advanced steps in ballet, hip-hop, etc.
4. Swimming- Bert Lozada is at the forefront when it comes to swimming lessons here in the Philippines. Visit his site for more info.

Get your child immersed in the arts, or in sports this summer. He or she will surely blossom into a more multi-faceted individual. And that, in turn, will make us proud parents.
