For example, speech and drama classes teach children how to communicate effectively as well as how to react in different types of situations and with different personalities. Art classes allow kids to explore their imagination and creativity, which are both extremely important for critical thinking in the future.
Speech & Drama helps build a child’s confidence, creativity and command of the language.
In general, exposure to such enrichment classes will introduce children to new and larger social circles and quite possibly, brand new ideas that are not so commonly examined or discussed in the formal school environment, with its fixed curriculum and focus on quantitative performance. This will only groom them to be holistic learners and leaders in their own right, capable of anything they set their mind to.
With school and extracurricular responsibilities, it can be exhausting for children to take on even more activities during their free time. However, if they are interested in pursuing something outside of school, and don’t mind sacrificing some of their leisure time, let them use it to cultivate an interest they may already have or may just want to discover. Remember, communication with your child is key here; you don’t want to force them into anything as they may end up resenting you for it instead.
Learning how to get along with peers and exposure to new ideas could help groom your child into holistic learners.
By trying something new, your child will be able to grow as a person, learn about their likes and dislikes, and most importantly, hone their skills as they experiment with a wide range of talents that they may not know they possess. In the process, they’ll learn and improve through the practice of teamwork, problem-solving, adaptability, and discipline, which are useful in any social situation.
