Kids bored during summer vacation? Here's an idea that's catching on
Boredom during summer vacation is a challenge for many parents, but there's a program in many Utah cities that's designed to solve that problem. Just ask 12-year-old Callie Johnson. Last summer, she and her brothers Luke and Zach were very busy. "We went fishing, and we collected some coins and we did a lot of services," she said. "We visited police departments and hospitals," among other things. Around her neck and around the necks of thousands of other school children are so-called "brag badges." They resemble military dog tags and each one contains brightly colored artwork illustrating various summertime activities.
