There’s a whole host of extra-curricular activities out there that you can sign your kids up for. Of course, parents are often guided by an interest that their child has – hence so many little girls who want to live out those princess fantasies choose to have ballet lessons. But sometimes, it’s also a good idea for the parents to do the choosing, as there are some fun activities that can really help develop children’s social skills too.
Soccer is a great example. No longer the preserve of boys, this is a game that any kid can play, and by joining a mini-soccer team your children will learn more than how to kick and dribble a ball. They’ll also learn the importance of team work, and how they need to co-operate with their team-mates in order for their team to score goals and win.
