Remember When Children Had Things To Do in the Summer?
I remember when I was growing up in Mississippi,we were able to get into a lot of things. During the summer, there were plenty of positive things to do. When I think about it being summertime and what children will be doing this year, I can't help but look at the lack of things for them to do and reflect on how things have changed over the years.
When I was growing up, we had the Boys and Girls Club, The Highland Park swimming Pool, and the infamous skating rink on Sunday nights. Sure, we had fights and kids got into trouble just like anywhere else, but we also had things going on that kept us rather busy and out of harm's way.
Obviously, it was years ago but we actually used to enjoy hanging outside until the lights came on the posts. I came across a list from Tripbuzz that highlights some things that are available for children. Check it out here. I have also heard some organizations are working on some more things to come, and I will be glad to share them with you all once I receive the information.
