Is it worth enrolling four-year-olds for extra-curricular activities??
Will the seven-year-old cope with all the extra-obligatory tasks??
You want to enroll your child for extra classes, because you think, that the time has come? Think first, why do you want to do that. Is that why, that your friends' daughters attend them, or maybe that's why, that your child expects it. Maybe you wanted to go to ballet in your childhood, but your parents did not let you and now you want to give your little daughter the best? Just is it best for her as well? Consider, talk to your child about this. ask, whether he wants to develop his skills in a given direction, look, what interests your child.
Remember, so as not to overload the child. Don't sign him up for multiple classes. Depending on the age, I think, that a four-five-year-old can walk on one, two maximum three extracurricular activities – although it always depends on the child and his enthusiasm. Seven-year-old. But remember ,it's not a competition. The activity is supposed to be fun, it is supposed to bring joy. When the child attends extracurricular activities every day, he will be tired and he will get bored quickly. Let's remember, that it is impossible to return to childhood, so let's not take it from our kids.
There's a possibility, that our consolation after 3 times of attending a dance, will communicate to us, that she doesn't like it anymore and won't go there anymore. Do not panic, let's wait. find out, what is the cause of the sudden change of mind. Maybe the teacher shouted? Or maybe a friend, with whom our daughter went to the dance, he gave up? It can happen sometimes, that our child's passion will simply change. Accept it, don't force it.
