Get Your Home Schooled Children Some Extracurricular Activities

How true it is that all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy! Education should not be limited to learning a few subjects to pass exams competitively. It should also comprise of activities geared at building up and enhancing a child’s physical fitness, enthusiasm to participate in sports and extra curricular activities, healthy interaction with other children, team spirit, personality, self confidence, courage and determination, among other traits.

Unless you expose your child to frequent contact with other children and preferably those doing normal schooling, you would be driving him increasingly into a shell of his own and isolating from others. Get him or her enrolled into a suitable club in your area for participating in sports, other outdoor/indoor games and social activities that would do a world of good for bringing them up with a positive outlook on life.

There are many clubs where membership is possible for children irrespective of whether they are schooling or not. If your child chooses a sport where he has no previous experience, you would be able to get some additional coaching arranged through the club itself. Even it is not possible, you could invite a few children who are already members for some afternoon practice sessions at the local park or elsewhere if you see to the enjoyment and reward of the obliging children too by providing some refreshments and snacks; and follow up with “spend the day” on your account once a month or so until your child also gets into his/her stride.

Even without these perks from you, their new found role of playing coach to your child itself would be enough reward for some of them! This arrangement would also achieve many other objectives as well such as bonding new friendships and exposing your child to mixing up healthily with other children of same age group, which is a very important factor especially for those who are home schooling.

If you are still having problems in getting your child enrolled into a club, look up some ads in the local newspapers. If you can get your child into some team sports, that would give him the training to achieve objectives collectively as a group that would stand him in good stead when it comes to employment too, where the emphasis is fast shifting to teamwork from individual performance. If the child is not keen on joining in sports demanding strenuous physical activity, get him into playing chess, or take part in an orchestra or a choir; dramas or any other gainful activity to which he or she has a leaning to.

Even if you have failed in all your attempts so far to get your child into a club for extra curricular activities, don’t give up. How do you like starting one of your own? Advertise in one or more most appropriate ways depending on your locality. Cover all your costs of purchasing necessary equipment, hiring grounds etc through subscriptions from members; although you could try to make maximum use of free venues like the local park. Another option is to use the free park to play Frisbees.

Many social organizations like churches, Rotary and Lions Clubs too provide ample opportunities for children to come together to engage in sports, indoor/outdoor games, singing, drama acting, picnics and even social get-togethers. One word of caution: If you happen to have two fiercely competitive children where always one does better than the other, get them into different clubs or change their forum of competition so that your weaker child would not suffer any inferiority complex and could forge ahead with gaining in self confidence.
