download." On the heels of our fraught nationwide experiment with distance learning, many parents are wondering how can we help our kids stave off regression between now and labor day. We brought in the "Gma" digital family editor and the author of "The happiest mom you know," Genevieve Shaw. Good morning. No parent -- I speak personally here -- doesn't want to be a nag, is there an easy way to keep our kids interested in doing some learning over the summer? You know, the idea is to give the kids control or at least the feeling of control. Choice words are a great way to do just that. You can have one for every subject. The kids get to pick the activity they want to do but it's all learning and they're available on websites. Hundreds of them on Pinterest. A great way to work collaboratively with your child choosing how they learn. My son keeps choosing to walk around the yard and find dead animals and I don't want to participate in that. What about other skills that kids have missed out on the last few months? You know, things like teamwork and problem solving, these are all essential skills for classroom success and you can find and brush up on those skills in traditional camp games. So the ultimate camp resource has hundreds of camp games, broken down into 15 different subjects, like circle games, and athletic games, and even games for kids with special needs. It's a really great way to brush up on those skills. Genevieve, Shaw, thank you very much.
