One way to 'prevent' summer vacation meltdowns is to communicate to children what exactly will be going on before, during and after the vacation before the vacation even begins! Kids like to know the low-down as it's easier for them to predict what will be happening which can lighten the blow for a potential meltdown. Things can go sideways pretty quick when something unexpected comes up for them. Children need more time to process information then adults. Try this for any summer outings, daytrips or events! Good luck and remember.......keep cool.
