Give your kid a choice of answers instead of asking yes/no questions if you really want to know what he thinks.
  1. Would you rather go to school year-round (including the summer!) and never have homework—or keep your school schedule as is?
  2. Would you rather spend your last day of the school year watching movies in class or playing outside with your friends?

  4. Would you rather spend a week at summer camp or travel to a faraway place for a week with your family?
  5. Would you rather go to summer school to learn something new or to get ahead—or spend no time doing schoolwork until the fall?
