It’s not that routines are out the window for the summer time it’s just that as a family you need to adapt to a different routine – like learning a new dance. Agree the limits beforehand. For example negotiate the ‘screen time’ or the ‘out time’. Consider when the broadband is to be on or off. Make and agree some plans for the week – small steps for jobs around the house and garden – with a natural family treat as a reward – like a trip to the beach; BBQ; time for friends; whatever works for your family.
