Tips for organizing children's holidays
While many children play and go with their parents to enjoy the pool every afternoon, many others have to go to the academy. When parents work, children's free time is usually organized in after-school classes. For some children, at first this can be a drama, because they have a hard time understanding where justice is when others have fun and they have to go to schools because their parents have to go to work. However, they usually end up learning to value all those acquired knowledge and to have fun. Here are a few ideas to organize the summer:
1. The grandparents: Many families have the help of grandparents, who are responsible for taking care of the little ones. But, although it is a way to build beautiful intergenerational relationships and expand the family nucleus, the grandparents will also need their free time so we can look for other alternatives to combine and manage the time of our children.
2. Summer camps: One of the most demanded possibilities are the summer camps. They offer a wide variety of activities, urban or in nature, through which children share adventures and build friendly relationships with others of their age. Most discover sports or hobbies that they had never tried and learn values such as companionship, solidarity or self-esteem. Social skills are reinforced and it is a good way for both parents and children to change their daily routines and charge the batteries.
3. Language academies: Another alternative is the language academies that offer different methodologies so that learning is not merely superficial, but the language can be integrated more deeply. The important thing is that our son has fun while learning as relaxation in front of the study favors the opening of cognitive channels, according to one of the theories about child learning. The ease that our brain has of creating a network that interprets and processes the information that comes to it will depend on how the learning arises. For example, some of the guidelines that may favor are self-sufficiency, emotional intelligence, environments not classified as "study" or "obligations" and observation.
4. Find moments of rest: In addition, we can not forget about rest, reconcile leisure with homework and, very important, develop and strengthen the strengths that are hidden. Proposing to write your adventure book during the summer can be a way to stimulate reading and writing in an effective and fun way.
Take advantage of summer as a family
As parents, let's not forget to take advantage of the summer months to introduce values that the rest of the year costs us more to educate as the concept of responsibility. For me, responsibility means the ability to learn things to give answers, to grow by valuing the options and analyzing the consequences from the values we teach them at home. No And let's not forget to give them a voice. Although they are the little ones in the house, introducing them to conversations,
letting them have their say and helping them to build something in common, they will not feel that we only want to keep them busy all day. Let's enjoy our free time together and take advantage of the fact that it's much easier to learn what you do not learn at school: on life.
