Marla Cilley, host of the BlogTalkRadio FlyLady and Friends Show (www.blogtalkradio.com/stations/flylady/flylady), revealed the results of her "School's Out" survey. Cilley found the number of parents planning to send their kids to summer camp this year will rise 3.5 percent over last year.

According to the survey, "the single biggest problem" parents say they face in terms of kids being home from school is not that families "don't have enough money for travel and other fun activities" (25.5 percent); it is the kids "have too much time on their hands and are bored" (32 percent). The survey found kids will be working to earn extra money (30 percent) and taking part in free or inexpensive activities, such as spending time at the library or visiting friends/relatives' houses (20.5 percent), vs. going to movies or theme parks (13.5 percent).
