The importance of extra-curricular activities

Sometimes making your child interested in extracurricular activities can be a challenge, but it’s not impossible. Complementary activities help your little one grow in a holistic way.

After school classes will help your child stay active, practice their social skills and learn something new. And most importantly, it will improve your academic performance.

Choosing the right extracurricular activity for your child can be challenging, specially when they don’t show any particular preference. Sometimes we just take it too seriously, because we think of how this extracurricular will help boost our child’s talent, instead of seeing only as an enjoyment for your child.

The one most important thing to take into account when choosing an extracurricular activity, is choosing one in which your child feels comfortable. Remember it will be an activity he will attend after school, so it’s important that he feels at ease and enjoys that time, not only learning, but also sharing hours with new friends and teachers.

Some children have clear preferences and know exactly what they like. Children with clear interest in some sports like basketball or football, fall into this category. Others are passionate about music and are excited to start playing an instrument such as drums, guitar or piano. This makes it easier for parents to choose what activity their children will pursue, making it a safer bet as the child’s motivation comes from within.

One of the advantages of extracurricular activities is that it creates commitment in your little one. Extracurricular activities help focus on the interests of children and strengthen trust.

Structured time. Sociologically we all work better having a path to follow, with goals and objectives to achieve. This helps interacting with other people.
