Brock’s Academy Wishes You a Happy 4th of July 2014!

This holiday let your children know about what the 4th of July represents.  Explain to them that America celebrates its birthday on the 4th of July to signify its independence from Britain.

“As children get older, they can begin to understand what independence means,” says Mary Eames, UCCI, Education Director of the Wellesley College Child Study Center. “When you become independent, you get a lot of freedom but you also get a lot of responsibility.”  Freedom and responsibility go hand-in-hand.  While Americans are free, we have a responsibility to be good citizens, follow the law and give back to the community.  Without responsibility and consequences for our actions, we cannot be free.

Boys and Flag Take some time this weekend to go on a family field trip and visit a historical site, such as the Fort Lewis Museum.  The HistoryLink.org site also lists Washington State historical sites.  Or go online and have your children read about the History of the American Revolution.  Teach your children the freedoms American’s enjoy today were hard-fought and won by our forefathers.  We should not take them for granted.

Brock’s Academy hopes everyone has a safe and happy 4th of July weekend!  Enjoy the fireworks, BBQ’s, parades and spend time with your family and friends.
