As the start of the new school year is fast approaching, we want to introduce you the importance of extracurricular activities for your children.
WHY AN EXTRA-CURRICULAR ACTIVITY CAN BE BENEFICIAL FOR YOUR CHILD
Although it remains a real headache for many parents, choosing an extracurricular activity with your child is a crucial moment in their personal development. Whether it’s a sport, art, culture or music, there is no age limit for starting.
Depending on their character and desires, they can enjoy a multitude of activities that will help them develop both mentally and physically.
Some examples of extracurricular activities:
Football is a sport that allows you to acquire good physical performance, but also to develop team spirit and sharing. It is ideal for children who are a bit hyperactive and need to exercise while having fun with others.
Swimming is a sport that allows you to exercise, strengthen your body and gain flexibility while having fun in a calm environment. Unlike football, it is an individual sport for children who want to develop a competitive spirit.
Horse Riding is an activity that develops motor skills and balance, but above all it helps children to take responsibility for themselves. It also allows the child to discover and become familiar with animals, and more particularly with the horse.
Theatre is a rather original activity which helps the child to socialise, not to be afraid of expressing himself and to acquire self-confidence. It also allows to touch different areas (comedy, tragedy or drama) which help the child to adapt to each situation.
Playing guitar is a musical activity that helps to improve both creativity and concentration, while developing perseverance and the desire to learn. It can be quite fun and the child may discover a real hidden talent!
A CAREFULLY CONSIDERED CHOICE THAT IS SHARED
All these activities help the child to develop and to exploit his talents, but above all to avoid boredom. It is important to choose an extracurricular activity with your child, according to his or her character and desire. It is a good way for them to develop their physical and mental capacities, while learning to have self-confidence.
Never force your child to do an activity that he or she does not like. It is essential to discuss and exchange ideas with your child on a regular basis in order to find out about his or her passions and to better advise him or her in his or her choice. Forcing them to do so could be counterproductive.
Let’s dispel this myth: there are no activities for “girls” or “boys”. Everyone is free to choose their favourite activity that best suits them.
