Children and Their Hobbies

>> Monday, March 23, 2009

It's six days and counting until the big day of Roberta's first ballet recital - Little Mermaid!

This whole week, hubby and I will be busy being stage parents for Roberta's ballet practices since it will be everyday until the big performance day this coming Sunday. Whew! Imagine nearly three hours of ballet practices everyday for a six year old prima ballerina wannabe. It's a good thing that she is enjoying all this and doesn't mind the hectic schedule.

I personally think it is important for kids to have extra curricular activities outside of the regular schoolwork that they normally get. This is a good way for them to relax and recharge from the daily "kiddie" stress that they have. It is also a good way to find our children's different talents based from the hobbies or things they like to do and develop them.

Roberta at the moment enjoys doing many other things aside from her school work. She likes to sing. She likes to dance. She likes to paint, draw, make crafts, build or create things. She likes to write and read. She also enjoys different sports such as swimming, playing softball, volleyball, basketball and wants to try taekwondo. She also likes to cook though of course she can't yet since she's too young so she just pretends she does and likes to watch me in the kitchen. At her age, it's like she wants to do so many things at the same time but that's okay because later on she will discover one or two things that she likes to do more than the other and will focus on it.

I would like to share this informative article I read about Childrens Hobbies and how we can help our children discover and enjoy their different interests.

How about your little ones? What hobbies do they like to do?

Ang cute cute naman ng little girl mo---so adorably cute.
But you know it's wrong for parents to push their children into too many activities--that's where real stress starts. Parenting experts believe that the more you make your children participate in activities that the parents are themselves become busier in attending the busy lives of their children---stress erupts.
I babysat two girls before whom their parents enrolled in so many activities after school--soccer, basketball, arts, ballet, karate and voice lessons. They are so stressed and exhausted everyday that they are always whiny and temperamental. I understand that their tempers flared up because of their exhaustion and mental stress they were handling . One is 7 and one is 6 and I just had to help them get over what they needed to do because they could not take more than they could handle.
