BUILDING SELF-ESTEEM WITH EXTRACURRICULAR ACTIVITIES. #starlingschool
Academics should be at the forefront of every child’s mind, but learning other skills is also a part of a well-rounded education. Extracurricular activities can go a long way to help your child gain confidence, learn new skills and make new friends.
You can help build up your child’s confidence with the following tips:
- Look for activities your child loves and is good at. Any activity that focuses on your child’s interest can boost confidence. So, look out for any activity that focuses on your child’s strength and encourage them to participate in them.
- Encourage your child to try out new extracurricular activities. When they discover that they can perform an activity that they normally wouldn’t do, their confidence level can go way up high.
- Engaging in extracurricular activities can help your child make new friends outside school and also interact with other kids with the same interests.
Being part of an extracurricular activity group can help your child to understand that school is just a part of life and that they can fit into other places and do a lot of positive things with their talents.
