What some of our viewers said: 

Dale Leach First of all you have to wake them, then get then off the couch, if you have work to be done around the house, have them help you do it, cement work, clean up, “weeds”, moving things around, be creative, get a Clue! It will make them a better person and they will thank you for it in the years to come. It will help when they get their first job!

Jesus Urb-PugaI usually like to put a swimming pool for the summer and camping ⛺️ it’s awesome for kids and of course welcome kids from down the block set up basketball back board. Not to many parents have money for traveling so just make it exciting even yard camping.

Debbie ForteI think it depends on the child camp might really be good but if your child is not outgoing it’s not a good place. family is good because they can do things with them give them the love the attention they may need so it really is up to the individual child.

Dad or AliveWe would play wiffle ball for hours and raid my buddy Luke’s pantry for pretzels and soda!
Kayla Lynn Marges My son does 8 weeks of swimming lessons in the mornings and then outside activities for the rest of the day and Baseball every tuesday night. My hubby coaches his team.
