Keeping Our Kids Busy

Keeping Our Kids Busy
With so much happening in and around us, keeping our kids positively engaged is one great way to keep them out of trouble. A child who does healthy extracurricular activities is most likely to fare better than the kid who doesn’t. Here are some benefits of keeping our kids positively engaged.
1) They stay focused: Children who engage in reading, tackling brain tasking puzzles or engaging in a particular sport they like, will grow to become focused as well as objective in their thoughts. There is no universal law guiding what you engage your kid in, just so long as it’s positive, creative, and something they love to do. They will seldom have time for bad companies or other stuff that would otherwise expose them to evil.

2) They won’t be TV addicts: Unfortunately, TV addiction has become another thorn in our flesh. With the many channels out there, it is quiet difficult to keep our kids away from TV. When you hear kids discuss stuff the watch on TV among themselves, you’ll wonder how they ever get good grades at school. However, engaging them in some other productive activities ultimately reduces the time they spend watching TV.

3.They are smarter than their peers: Of course children who have a wider knowledge would always be smarter than their peers. Their minds are trained to take on other information as well as digest them properly.

4.They’ll hardly be exposed to evil: Children who are engaged positively, are not as exposed to danger, as opposed to kids who are allowed to run lose and wild. Agreed, you can’t control the things that happen around you or your kids, but you can certainly control how they affect you. When your kid is creatively and productively engaged, even when they are exposed to bad company, they’ll know to take the right decision, because their mind sets are already tuned to be responsible.

5. The child gets to learn more about himself: there is a greater chance of a kid who is focused to discover his or her hidden talents or potentials. Take for instance, a kid who has great passion in books, his/her heart is broadened and becomes a fertile ground for great ideas. Mind you, his imagination is developed as well. A kid like this is less likely to fall into the wrong crowd.
