Five Minutes to Spare - Elementary

KATE SNOW, reporting

Parents are so busy. It's hard to add one more thing to the schedule. Luckily, with a few quick tips and 5 minutes to spare, you can support your elementary school student's overall development. Here's how - when you're waiting in line at the store, doctor’s office, or to pick up siblings at school, read! By bringing a magazine, book, or newspaper, you're showing your child reading can be a fun way to pass time. And you're also setting a good example of patience, or self-management. The next time you're in the grocery store, try to stick to the outer aisles where produce, dairy, and fresh foods are stored. The inner aisles usually have candy, chips, and other snacks that aren't as nutrient-rich. Plus, staying out of those aisles will keep your child from trying to get you to add snacks to the cart, saving you time and headaches.
