Spring Break has just ended for many or is around the corner. Children may also have some time off for Easter, then comes summer vacation. Many parents struggle with making their child’s breaks from schools meaningful and safe. Many parents do not have the luxury of taking work off that week and this can be a time of worrying for these parents. During this past Wednesday’s #PTCHAT (Parent Teacher Chat) educators, administrators, and parents gathered to discuss ways to survive Spring Break. Even if you missed our recent Spring Break edition of #PTCHAT, you will still be able to use the fantastic tips provided to us by our star panelists, Mary J Davis (@marybabysteps) and Rajean Blomquist (@Rajean). Mary Davis is a wife and mom to 3, a freelance writer, and a blogger for Everydaybabysteps.com, Adventuresinfreelancing.com, and Nevertoolateforcollege.com. Rajean Blomquist describes herself as a seasoned and saucy PR pro and mama to four.
