Summer is often painted in this picture of running through the sprinkler, going to the pool, camping out underneath the stars, going to camp, and everything in between. This is thought of as the typical summer, but the truth is far from the idyllic image we know and love.
Our children’s shelter sees so many wonderful kids come through our doors. We are familiar with much of the experiences they bring with them. While so many people like to think that having an average, nuclear family is a tangible aspiration in life, we know that this is hardly the case. Summer is an especially relevant time to address some of what goes on in the lives of kids, and AAHN’s Place is here to provide some facts and some clarity.
