Summer vacation is considered as one of the most important holidays for students. And parents can make the best use of this time period to enhance their children’s skills, inculcate new learnings, and help them adapt learning new hobbies.
In the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic, it has been witnessed that not only parents suffered, but the students were the worst sufferers, as they were not able to follow their basic routine activities and because of the continuous opening and closing of schools, but students also were not able to focus on their studies and other co-curricular activities.
To help students to boost their confidence and make them ready for the coming future, it is the need of an hour that parents should adopt some habits that will make their students mentally and physically active.
India Today spoke to some of the experts and mothers to get a fair idea about how parents can keep their children engaged in fun activities during this summer vacation and make the long break academically productive too.
“Not too many activities, but routine ones like the daily visit to the park, unwinding with some animation movies, and not overplanning the day so the child has the opportunity to get bored! Why should children be bored is a longer topic for another day, but let’s just say that the best ideas are born out of boredom!” she further added.
Students should also be motivated to read exciting books, write daily journals and watch educational documentaries that can be helpful in nurturing their knowledge base during the long break.
They can also go for a few educational activities which the students can explore during the summer break to scale up their academic skills. A few of these exciting activities include honing skills in coding, attending webinars on entrepreneurship and start-ups and motivational workshops, and getting up-skilled in home science and technology.
According to several parents, “One thing the last couple of pandemic summers taught us is how little downtime children are left with during formal, structured schooling — and what lovely things they learn and create when they have more of it. So, before regular physical-classroom schooling re-emerged, I want to guard his downtime and help him be more aware of how important it is to balance your leisure and hobby spaces, and your must-dos.”
