First, children need to be physically involved.
- Enroll your child in a physical activity that your community or school may offer.
- Better yet, join your child in a physical activity such as; indoor swimming, skating, tennis, soccer, or basketball. Families that play together stay together!
Second, children need to be mentally challenged.
- Make sure to encourage your child to always have a book to read. It is equally important to set aside time for this activity in order to establish this life-long and worthwhile habit.
- Promote your child’s writing skills by asking him to write thank you notes for gifts received or for further advancing new goals for the New Year.
- Reinforce his research skills by asking him to help plan your next trip or spring vacation.
- Continue to use this time to support your child’s passions, interests, or talents.
Third, Children need to be socially engaged.
- Invite their friends over the house for family night.
- Rent or take them out for a movie, a visit to a museum, or enroll them in a new learning activity they can do together.
- Keep in mind, a well-balanced child is a happy, healthy-minded child.
