But that's not all. The May issue of Scholastic Parent & Child is filled with stories to help parents and kids end the school year with ease and get summer started on the right foot! A few highlights from the issue include

Suspended – Are zero-tolerance policies in schools helping or hurting kids? Reports of kindergarten students being suspended for talking about shooting a bubble gun or using their fingers as guns while playing cops and robbers have circulated, and some people are wondering if the policies are taking things too far.
  • Extreme Discipline Doesn’t Work – Schools developed zero-tolerance policies hoping to make schools safer, but some psychologists say that such harsh discipline for young kids can be more damaging in the long run – the best predictor of suspension or expulsion is having been suspended or expelled.
  • How to Get it Right – Kids respond better when teachers reward good behavior and explain what went wrong when they misbehave. This method keeps more kids in class learning when they would otherwise be sent to the office or home!

Easiest Birthday Party Ever! – The pressure is on for parents to throw bigger and better birthday parties, but the expense can be staggering! Even parents with limited craft skills can pull off a spectacular DIY party with a minimal budget.
  • Decorations – Easy-to-make decorations, like fringed tissue paper garland and wall confetti, can be assembled from craft supplies you probably already have at home!
  • Sweets – Kids love to decorate their own treats at parties, and we bet they’ve never decorated a donut before! With a few simple homemade glazes (3 ingredients!) and some candies, they can customize store-bought donuts easily!
  • Party Games – Grab a few extra paper cups, some balloons and some mini marshmallows to construct your own marshmallow shooters! Send the kids to the backyard and let them have a blast launching marshmallows into the air!
  • Favors – Some parents spend just as much on goody bags as they do on the rest of the party! There are plenty of creative ways to send your guests off with a treat without a big budget, like letting kids create their own candy necklace or making a board with colored tissue paper that kids can punch through to find a prize!
