How to Prep for a Stress Free Summer
Clementine discusses the importance of reducing friction between kids and adults during the summer, reducing adult stress, and preparing for emergencies. She suggests setting expectations and setting goals for the family at the beginning of the summer by having a big meeting to discuss goals and expectations with each member of the family. Check-ins can be daily or weekly for older children, and smaller check-ins are useful for younger children. She emphasizes establishing routines to reduce friction, prioritizing breakfast and sleep routines first thing in the morning and last thing at night to protect sleep. She explains that children need around 18-20 grams of protein per day and suggests focusing on one meal per day to ensure adequate hydration and nutrition. She recommends protein sources can vary depending on whether the family is omnivorous or vegetarian.
