Research indicates that kids who participate in extracurriculars perform better in school, have higher self-esteem, and are less likely to engage in destructive behaviors.
Encourage your children to participate in an activity that will stimulate them while they are having fun.
Examples of positive extracurricular activities are ballet, football, violin, piano, etc.
Do not pack your children’s schedules with activities.
While extracurriculars are important, do not force your children to follow rigorous schedules with no room for relaxation. One activity outside of school is sufficient for the average child to be stimulated appropriately.
