Holiday books: for or against?

Holidays ! The opportunity to finally rest, enjoy the sun and do nothing ... well, not for everyone. Every summer, traditional holiday homework (or notebooks) sometimes slip into our children's suitcase.

While holidays are a time of rest, they can also be used to catch up or solve some of the difficulties the child may feel at school. Studying in an environment other than the school can help to make the child feel guilty, which is why the parent should not play the role of the teacher or master, because it can block the child.

Some are not in favor of holiday books. For them, holidays can be educational without imposing homework. A stroll in the nature, the visits of historical monuments, the visit of a museum ... will be able to enrich the child, without constraining it as would the imposition of a notebook of holidays.
