Kids today need to develop and engage in a hobby that doesn’t includes a TV screen or mobile gadget. This is because children today spend more time watching movies and TV shows and playing games or other apps on their tablets and smart phones that this is becoming really unhealthy for them. Because of these unhealthy habits, they can develop poor eyesight, their bodies won’t get the necessary amount of exercise, they won’t be able to socialize and make new friends, and of course, they won’t acquire any remarkable skills or talents that can be worth being proud about.
One good and healthy hobby or activity that kids should get into is joining a music or dance class. These classes will enable kids to develop and showcase their talents in performance, either in dancing or in music. Through a dance class, children will also be able to get the regular workout they need. With either class, kids will be able to socialize, meet other children and make new friends.
Unfortunately, there will be kids who might not welcome this idea or activity wholeheartedly. Unless they are really interested in singing, dancing, or learning how to play a musical instrument, you have to accept the fact that you will get some sort of resistance from your child.
If you have this kind of problem, one tip that you can follow is to get your child to look at photos of other kids learning and having fun in a music or dance class or let him or her watch a movie that showcases the same. Most websites of music and dance schools have galleries where they post pictures of lessons and recitals or performances and when your child sees these photos, he or she may be more interested to join these classes to find out why students are so happy and what they’re learning about. The same thing can happen when kids watch a movie that highlights the great and fun experiences of children who join a music or dance class.
In addition, your child may also be more interested and open to join such classes after he or she observes an actual one. You can take your child to observe a ballet, jazz dancing, piano or guitar lesson while it is going on. While watching these classes, you say your observations regarding how the students are having fun and how the teacher is really patient and supportive. Your child will then find the courage and interest to join such classes.
