ABSTRACT
A survey by the Boys and Girls Clubs of America found that half of all the U.S. parents think they don't spend enough time on their child's educational enrichment outside of school. The respondents said that they enjoy engaging in learning activities with their children, but often don't know how to fit it into busy schedules. The good news is that the time one already spend together provides great learning opportunities, kids learn about cooperation and problem solving by playing board games. Using maps together when one travels builds geographic knowledge and abstract-thinking skills. Playing catch, riding bikes, and going to the playground builds gross-motor skills— and your child's confidence.
