All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy Want your child to learn to be responsible, empathetic, competitive and strong?
I know I am. Now that my daughter has started kindergarten, I feel that she is old enough to understand and enjoy extra curricular activities, as well as my 3-year-old son.
The values from extra-curricular activities: There are many benefits to extracurricular activities.

I have seen this transformation specifically in my kids.
Extra-curricular activities have helped them emerge into social butterflies. I started my eldest daughter at 5 months, my son at 4 months and now my little one at 3 months. Music has always made my children happy!
Repetition of songs, movements, and instruments we would use helped my children learn about rhythm, tunes, and different ways to make music. I started my daughter at the age of 4 and my son at 3. They learned how to balance, jump, and go through different obstacles. They also were able to discover flexibility.
In the next few months I will be starting my two oldest kids in a soccer league. When I was younger my parents started me off in basketball and volleyball and saw how beneficial it was in my adult life.
I learned how to work as a team and how to compete. Plus it kept me active and healthy.
Martial arts, tae kwon do, or karate: These types of activities help children learn discipline, train your mind, and strengthen your body. I have seen my son build a lot of respect and strength from putting him in tae kwon do. Dance builds confidence, coordination, and kinesthetic intelligence.
We as a family usually have a dance session on Friday evenings. It is a time to just be silly and dance around in our living room. I have my daughter in dance classes right now. She did ballet for about a year and now is in bollywood dance classes. She enjoys them both very much!
