While summer months offer time for relaxation and opportunities to pursue fun activities there are a few cons to consider. For some students, a long break isn’t quite as blissful. Some students lack guidance or support at home to fully enjoy their summer break. Or they simply do not cope as well without the daily routine school schedules provide.

Cons of summer break:

  • Lack of structure & routine

  • No access to school counselors

  • Good habits slowly dwindle and are difficult to rebuild

Keep in mind that students can balance out any negatives by considering opportunities to utilize their time effectively to better their social lives, maintain academic strengths, and boost their mental health. With the help of parents and loved ones all students deserve a great summer break for successful fall!
