Y3K Tutor In Your Home tutoring Boston, Needham and the surrounding areas always gives back to the community. Again this year Y3K Tutor In Your Home has donated tutoring and test preparation services to the Sportsmen’s Tennis & Enrichment Center in Dorchester, MA. It is an honor to assist the children of Boston with our auction donation. Be sure to bid at the Sportsmen’s Tennis Ball – Living Their Dream this coming Friday.
A recent study showed that for children who do not have any siblings, having a pet helps them develop greater self-esteem and improved empathy. These children also participate more in physical and social activities. Adopting a pet from your local shelter you will not only save a life, but they will save your family as well.
The Sportsmen’s Tennis and Enrichment Center in Boston, MA will be having their silent auction this coming Friday. If you attend the Dorchester event called The Sportsmen’s Tennis Ball, be on the lookout for the Y3K Tutor In Your Home donation for tutoring and test prep. The money raised will help them support high quality free and low-cost youth programs year round. Boston youth’s lives will be enriched through our donation and your bids.
As a society, we tend to feel obligated to fill every hour of our children’s days with activities. Physical and creative outlets such as sports, art, theater and music are something every child needs, however not at the expense of their education. If school is suffering due to lack of homework and study time because of outside activities, some activities should be cut. Education must be the priority.
Choose books that are fun and interesting. Now is the chance to read about exciting topics that are not covered in school that kids love. Some examples include favorite wrestlers, astronomy, sports stars, UFO’s, Loch Ness Monster, Bigfoot and unsolved mysteries.
You hit home runs not by chance but by preparation.
Y3K Tutor In Your Home recently donated our tutoring and test prep services to the MetroWest YMCA Charity Auction – Helping Kids in Need. Please bid generously as the money raised provides financial assistance for low-income youth to participate at the YMCA and helps fund programs like Teen Night.
Bad Report Card? What To Do #5: Check The Schedule
Are the demands of an excessive extra-curricular schedule causing report card grades to be low? Sports, music, and theater are just a few examples of time consuming activities students may focus on more than their studies. Sometimes there is not enough time in the day to meet the demands of their activities and put in their best effort on their homework. As a parent, you have the responsibility of examining the extra-curricular schedule and modify it if necessary so they have the time needed to do their homework and study.
Here are some ways for children to prevent water tubing injuries:
- Wear a personal floatation device (PFD). If a water tubing accident happens, a life vest may prevent drowning.
- Have a spotter, whose only job is to keep an eye on those who are tubing. The spotter should tell the driver of any issues, such as falling off the tube or rider requests to slow down.
- Check the tow rope before starting. The tow rope should be free of slack and should not be tangled with any objects. The tube can flip leading to accidents
If your child goes tubing, there are certain precautions the adult boat driver should take. Adults should be alert to how wide the tube is swinging out from the wake. Look for possible obstacles for collisions. Boat drivers should slow down when towing tubes. Children riding in tubes can’t make changes in direction and when towed at higher speeds, the tube tends to whip wide outside the boat’s wake.
Tomorrow we will look at how kids can protect themselves while tubing.
