Now more than ever, learning plays an integral role in the development and growth of your child. Your child may be eager to soak up all the sun, play outside, and engage in all the wonders that summer has to offer after being cooped up at home during the COVID-19 lockdown. It’s important, though, to remain safe.
To make this summer a healthy and fun period for your child this year, integrate the element of education that has encouraged your child to persevere and thrive throughout the past few months. The learning aspect will serve as a familiar support for your child as they continue to grow in this time away from the physical classroom and distance learning both.
To give you and your child some inspiration in making this summer a season of learning, below are three quotes about learning that will help your family make the most of the warm weather.
“Oh, the joy of young ideas painted on the mind, in the warm, glowing colors fancy spreads on objects not yet known, when all is new and all is lovely!” — Hannah More
This quote emphasizes the beauty of summer warmth. The season fills us with joy and encourages us to learn with faith in mind – that new ideas are colorful and meant to inspire us to continue forward in our pursuits of knowledge of the word of God and the world around us.
“But if any of you want wisdom, let him ask of God, who giveth to all men abundantly, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.” — James 1:5
Read this bible quote to remind yourself to seek knowledge through God. Without Him, we would be lost and unable to understand the lessons He seeks to teach us. As your child enjoys the summer months, make faith and prayer major elements of your family’s evening routine. Use this time to reflect on what you’ve learned that day through God.
“A man of great memory without learning hath a rock and a spindle and no staff to spin.” — George Herbert
This quote reminds us that learning is at the heart of growth. Without it, we continue onward with no real direction and empty knowledge. Don’t aim to memorize. Aim to learn and absorb.
