  • Enroll him in a lot of summer camps and summer sports. Take advantage of the beach and you can never go wrong with a pool!

  • I have seen some posts about free movies at Regal movie theaters and free bowling too. I don't have the links though, so google it and see what you come up with. Also most museums do a free day a month...ours is the first Tuesday of each month.

  • Pool, the beach, library, crafts, some theatres have free movies one day a week, don't know were you are in Florida, but there are always touristy things to do. And there is nothing wrong with just hanging out with friends.Also at that age he should have responsibilities around the house that should take up some of his time.
