The phrase, “All Work And No Play Makes Jack A Dull Boy “ summarizes how marks and report cards aren’t the “end-all-be-all” assessment of how your child is faring in his education and life. Play, be it sports, theatre or even a pretend tea party, is essential for a child’s holistic development.
Experts recommend balancing a demanding academic schedule with an hour or two of playtime. Games, make-believe plays, social interactions, etc. help cultivate different skills, gain varied experiences and improve physical and mental wellbeing.
Promotes Active Lifestyle
Try these simple and practical steps to help your child balance work and play in their life.
You can start by allocating adequate time for both study and play.
Stay on a lookout to identify your child’s saturation level. Tell them it’s okay to take a break when they feel overwhelmed by their work.
Teach them to organize their work beforehand so that they don’t feel overburdened later.
Most importantly, merely having a schedule is not enough. While creating their daily schedule, incorporate a variety of activities. For instance, if your child likes to read, create a plan where they have an hour dedicated to reading and an hour for playing sports.
Balancing academics with a variety of activities will not only yield good results but will also improve your child’s overall lifestyle.
