How Extra Curricular Activities In School Boost Kid's Confidence

Will extra curricular activities in school go an extra mile to improve the academic performance of my kid? This is the question most parents have and according to a new study, the answer to this question is affirmative. Students, who regularly participated in extra curricular activities have surpassed their friends when it comes to educational performance. In addition, these children also showed considerable improvement in their behaviour and habits. The thing parents will have to remember here is that extra-curricular activities can do more than just keeping the kids occupied after school hours.

Extra Curricular Activities for Kids:

When it comes to extra curricular activities in school, most schools provide the opportunity for children to participate in different activities pertaining to music, sports, arts and crafts, cooking, dancing, etc. Some schools have a long list of extracurricular activities and they have made it compulsory that each child should choose at least any one of them. Here, children are given complete liberty to choose their favourite activity, such that they will have better interest to learn the same.

How Will it Help in Boosting Confidence?

Extra activities for kids will help them achieve a considerable boost in their confidence level by bringing them the following benefits:

Time Management and Prioritising:

Participating in extra curricular activities in school regardless of the type of activity will help with improving the time management skill in children. In addition, they will gain the ability to choose the things that should be given priority first and then will follow other activities. This means that their prioritising skill will improve.

Exploring Different Interests:

As mentioned earlier, most schools have a long list of extracurricular activities. In addition, kids are provided with the opportunity to try out each one of them before they identify the best suitable. So, this chance provided to kids by many schools will help them explore their areas of interest in different activities. In other words, they can identify their areas of interest and can improve the same to get the best help for their future.

Building Self-Esteem:

Extra curricular activities in school provide the right opportunity for kids to make their contribution to the school and even to the community. This is something important for preparing themselves outside the school and outside academics. When they make some contribution to the society and to the school, they are able to experience a better level of self-esteem. The reason is that they can build their self-esteem in a relaxed setting as their activities provide them with the opportunity to be successful in something that they are highly passionate about.

For Future:

These activities can boost their self-confidence by providing them better chance to get college admissions. In addition to academic records, most colleges look to admit students with some additional talents like sports, music, etc. Besides these things, participation in extra curricular activities will improve the goal-setting ability of children, which will be of great help for their future career. They will also shine in teamwork, which is another aspect to help them in their career. In addition, students with extra curricular records are known to perform better in academics as well, which boosts their self-confidence to a great extent.
