PB Parenting

Greetings, Summer is here! Congratulations Moms and Dads, you have survived another school year! (Great job too, kids)!

Volume 6, Issue 6 | June 2017

Summer is one of my favorite times. It means less routine, more fun, later nights, later mornings and maybe we will squeeze in a family vacation too! However, with three kids under my roof, summer can be a little bit of a challenge keeping them all happy! Some weeks they go to summer camp but some weeks they have “camp mommy”. It is definitely a balance on those weeks trying to find something all three kids (ages 5, 8 and 12) agree on. To keep my sanity we always have an outing every day. Sometimes a short jaunt down to our favorite splash pad. Sometimes it can be a day trip to the Palm Beach Zoo or the Science Center, or if we are feeling really adventurous we jaunt down to Fort Lauderdale or even Miami. In addition to our Camp Directory, PB Parenting wants to help you have some fun this summer and has put together a Kickoff to Summer contest package! You can win a Family Four pack to South Florida Science Center & Aquarium and the Palm Beach Zoo, four tickets to Monster Jam at the BB&T Center on August 5-6, 4 passes for indoor fun to Cool Beans Indoor Playground and Joey’s Outback Adventures (perfect on a hot day! ) plus 4 Summer Savings Passes. This provides unlimited admission to 4 attractions throughout the summer -- Lion Country Safari, Miami Seaquarium, Museum of Discovery and Science and Zoo Miami. Check out page 10 for details and be sure to go to our facebook page to enter to win! Happy Parenting!

A Day for Dad: Make This Father’s Day One to Remember BY KIMBERLY BLAKER

Fathers play a significant part in children’s lives. They influence children’s self-esteem and school performance, are important role models, and among other meaningful roles, make fun-loving playmates. Father’s Day is just around the corner; so don’t be caught scrambling for the perfect way to show you care. Try some of these ideas, and make it a special day just for Dad that both of you will enjoy. Video Surprise – Make a “World’s Best Dad” video that he’ll treasure for years to come. Put on your brainstorming cap for your own ideas, or try some of these. On videotape, share special memories of your dad, sing to him, read him a poem, or do skits. Get the whole family involved and conduct interviews with each other with Dad as the main topic. Don’t forget your props such as a banner or collection of his prized possessions including sports trophies or equipment that tell who he is. Finally, be sure to let him know just how much he means to you. King for the Day – It isn’t everyday that dad is waited on hand and foot. Offer to be his loyal servant for the day, and bring him coffee and toast in bed; fetch his newspaper; lie out his clothes, bath towel, and mat; be host or hostess and serve his beverages and snacks; clean up after him and anything else to give him the royal treatment. Memories of Dad – Purchase a scrapbook,

and create a record of memories about your father and you. Include photos of special outings, events, and holidays you’ve had together and other memorabilia from family vacations and activities such as concert or sporting event ticket stubs, postcards, and brochures. Next to each photo or item, describe your memories of those times together with your father. A Man to Remember – Get your creative juices flowing, and write a poem for your dad. You need not be a poet to come up with a few thoughtful words to say how much he means. Describe the impact he’s had on your life, how he’s helped you to become the person you are today, and what he is to you. Then print it on stationary, matte and frame it. Musical Moment– Take your father to see his favorite band or performing artist, enjoy a jazz or blues festival, or pack up some lawn chairs, and enjoy a local concert-in-the-park. World’s Greatest – Let dad know that he’s the greatest 365 days a year! Give him a “World’s Greatest Dad” coffee mug, t-shirt, book cover, book marker, wallet card, or other trinket that he’ll see or use regularly. Sports Buff’s Surprise – Take your dad for a sporting good time. Play a game of golf, tennis, or basketball, go fishing at the river’s edge, or enjoy a paddle around a lake. If being a spectator is his thing, purchase tickets to his favorite sporting event such as

certificate for a professional massage, which will be sure to please.

Weekend Getaway – Get in touch with nature and each other on a camping trip for two. Either rough it in a tent or rent a mini cabin at a state park, and spend your weekend enjoying nature hikes, sight seeing, fishing, boating, playing cards, and taking it easy together.

Just the Two of Us – Put together a photo collage of you and your father. There are many ways to do this. Find instructions at your nearby craft store and create a Decoupage photo collage, keep it simple with a multi-photo frame, or purchase a unique 3D Photo Collage frame which can be found through a number of stores online.

Father’s Day Feast – As the old adage goes; the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach. So, treat dad to a mouthwatering meal on the bar-be-que. Fix him his favorite: steak, ribs, chicken, burgers, or chops for starters, and don’t forget the grilled potatoes or squash, garlic bread or rolls, fresh green beans or asparagus, sweet corn, potato salad, and last but not least, his favorite dessert. Treat Him Like a King – What better way to show your appreciation for all his hard work than to indulge him? Give your father a gift

Take a Stroll – Enjoy a peaceful walk together in the park or the country. Better yet, gather your bikes or roller blades, hit a scenic bike path, and enjoy the summer breeze. Certificates of Appreciation – Show Dad you appreciate his hard work by returning the favor. Make coupons that say: “In appreciation for all that you do, Dad, please redeem this certificate for a hassle-free car wash by me!” Other favors include sweeping out the garage, mowing the lawn, or any

other task for which he normally takes responsibility. Catch a Flick…..or two – Treat your dad to a movie fest. Rent a couple newly released videos or some of his long time favorites, or head to the cinemas for a double feature. Whether you take the movies in at home or the theatre, don’t forget the hot, buttered popcorn, candy, and soft drinks. A Gift of Giving – Does your dad have a favorite cause or charity such as the Humane Society, the Nature Conservancy, or American Cancer Society? If so, why not give him a membership or make a donation in his name? Remember that small donations add up and are always appreciated. Kimberly Blaker is a realtor and an author and freelance writer.
