The Boys & Girls Clubs of America (BGCA) has been around for a very long time. For over 100 years they have been providing communities a place where their children can go to socialize, engage in various activities, learn and hang out. The BGCA helps children be productive, caring, responsible adults – skills and traits learned through many of the programs offered at their clubs. Tomorrow, September 15, 2012 is the Boys & Girls Clubs Day for Kids a national celebration focusing on the importance of establishing stronger relationships between adults and youth. I think it would be great fun to do a parent/child potato sack race at the local Day for Kids event in my area. Teaching parents and children to rely on each other and work together is a great message to send and it’s easily demonstrated in sack races – don’t you think?
