Most parents believe that the school provides all a child needs.This belief leaves many aspects of the child’s life unattended to and in the course of this certain needs are bypassed and tagged unimportant. After school and during holidays the child is neglected and lonely having little or no friends outside school. Boredom comes knocking and most parents are comfortable plopping their children down in front of the television or game console.
Too much television is not healthy, the child knows little of the outside world and his social skills continue to deplete. A child is structured with what he sees and experiences, feelings as well as intellect are developed inline with the environment. The brain should not be dulled, help your child keep it in constant motion with fun activities and healthy challenges like these:
Learning a new skill: there are many skills children can learn from bead making to woodwork. Let your child pick whichever fascinates them the most and watch them have fun and learn. They can sell their products after they’ve made them, this helps them learn about money and value.

Joining educational clubs: During the holidays you can sign your child up with an educational club like a book club, JET club or MAD science club. They get to make new friends outside school. In addition to learning they also develop social skills which they will need as they get older.
