Extracurricular activities are a great way to encourage your child to grow and develop varied interests outside of academics. However, a lot of fun extracurricular activities do have a positive impact on your child’s development inside and outside of school. The Tutoring Center in San Ramon would like to share with you some of the benefits of having your child participate in extracurricular activities.

Varied interests

Encouraging your child to try new activities allows them to explore their interests and seek out new passions. These interests can be developed into lifelong skills that will benefit your child in the long run. If college is in your child’s future plans, well rounded interests and experiences are always a plus on college applications.

Time management

Having different activities to participate in will encourage your child to practice prioritizing tasks. Having your child keep a calendar or planner with all of their future activities written down will help your child become more organized and encourage them to manage their time wisely.

Confidence building

Extracurricular activities provide a platform for your child to develop leadership skills. Whether they are appointed captain of their sports team or group leader for the week, your child will have practice being in charge and leading a group. Your child will also be able to develop meaningful relationships with other children and adults outside of the classroom.

Promote well being

Activities like sports, dance and outdoor groups will make sure your child is physically active and healthy. These activities will also help your child develop character and a strong work ethic while trying to achieve goals they have set. Also, remember that a healthy body promotes a healthy mind.

Encourage creativity

Arts and music programs will allow your child to develop their creative side. Along with fostering creativity, arts and music programs can help your child deal with stress and nervousness. Encourage your child to pick up and instrument or to participate in an art program and see the benefits of allowing their creativity to flow.
