School's Out!
Summer holidays are a chance for you and your family to take a break from the school routine and slow things down. Here are some top tips you might like to try with your teen over the holidays.
Holiday movie-making marathon
These holidays, instead of just having a traditional movie marathon, why not encourage your teen to make their own movie? They will be practising their literacy and technology skills over the break, and having lots of fun too!

Time with your teen
Some teens seem to spend all the holidays at home, while others are rarely seen! No matter whether you spend more time with your teen, or less, these ideas will help you to get more out of your time together.
Books on bookshelves
Finding books every teen should read
It’s impossible to agree on a list of books that all teenagers must read, but these ideas will help your teen find some good books for them. So read on!
Smart teen screen time
There is a growing body of evidence that suggests too much screen time is becoming a hazard to our teenager’s eyes, general health and to their social skills. Too much screen time can also make it harder for your teenager to get to sleep.
