According to me children’s leisure time activities should be educational as well as aimed at entertaining their psyche and physique.
Parents believe that if children work under pressure right from the day one, they will be able to cope later on with life better. But parents who impose their narrow views upon their children are spoiling their children’s future. Creativity will sprout only when it is unrestricted and the child is encouraged to pursue his or her field of aptitude. Instead of insisting time to be an extension of study time, parents must develop other traits in children such as creativity, curiosity, rational thinking etc.
Leisure activities must be made more creative. Children must read to assimilate knowledge about the world outside. Participating in sport is a sure way for learning lessons in winning and losing gracefully. They will develop a ‘never say die’ spirit. Interacting with other children will help them develop adaptability and effective communication skills.
To conclude, children must be entertained and educated at the same time.
