It can be difficult to balance one’s life as a busy parent with children. There are work obligations and children’s schedules to adhere to. But a parent always also wants to make time for kids activities.
Children can benefit from kids’ activities because it gives them a sense of community. They are no longer isolated in a school but part of after school activities. Parents should make time to help accommodate these endeavors because they help to keep kids out of trouble.
Cultivating pro social behavior is important for healthy development. Children can later grow up and decide how active they want to be in extra circular activities. But they will definitely not feel like they missed out on anything in childhood. That way they can have fond memories of the time for kids’ activities that their parents carved out.
Find a space to ask children what they might be passionate about and encourage their talents. It will be a no regret decision on how to spend parental time.
