7 THINGS TO CONSIDER AS PARENTS DURING SCHOOL VACATION

 

Holidays are some kind of free days for rest and recreation as we all know. The brain indeed needs a break from the school stress at some point but at the same time needs to stay alive always to avoid the state of dormancy. It'll be needed of you as a concerned parent to look out for ways to help make your child or children better.

 

THESE ARE 7 THINGS SUGGESTED FOR PARENTS BELOW AS THE VACATION IS ONGOING 

 

1. ACTIVE SYSTEM

 

 Apply an active system whereby a child is constantly asked questions that he/she could either answer or be propelled to do an exploration on, it could be general questions or grounded/based on what the child had learned in class having studied the scheme of work for his/ her former term. This system would help that child’s brain to be kept alive knowing completely well that questions may be popped up at any time, you'll be surprised at how that child would come back to you with questions for clarity or may have to contradict your opinion with reasonable data, this would prove to you that growth has been made in his/ her thinking capability. It could be in form of practicals, for illustration while cooking in the kitchen you can ask that the child measures 1/2 a mug of a component into a bowl or other questions like, if 3 mugs of rice would feed the six of us, how many mugs of rice would feed us when we're 8?, What's the capital of Imo state in Nigeria?  (this is an exploration question as it may not be taught  in school but because you want your child to be vast in knowledge) you ask them those questions.

 

 2. GIVE THEM A BREAK AND ENSURE THEY DO NOT EXCEED IT

 

 As soon as the break approaches, be sure that your children have a peaceful time, engage them with conditioning that would help them relax their brain similar to swimming, going to see pictures, playing with their mates (helps them do a lot of catch-ups) and so on. 

 

Each day ensure there are some sportful and peaceful moments to make a balance, try not to protect the break as too much of everything isn't good. 

 

3. MAKE THE HOME ENVIRONMENT DECENT ENOUGH FOR LEARNING 

 

What they see has a lot to do with their brain and the terrain, how is your home? A neat and well-kept home will go a long way in aiding your child’s development. You may need a study table and chairs for your children, if possible a study room. What are the types of decorations placed in their apartments, does it speak volumes in respect of learning? For the little ones, what does their bedroom design look like, will it educate the children? The kiddies need toys while teenagers need games that would help stimulate their thinking capability similar to board games (ludo, chess, draft e.t.c or any other productive game. 

 

 

 4. MAKE SURE THEY EAT HEALTHY  

 

 Give your children a properly balanced diet, for those who eat less, give them supplements and multivitamins, more so enough fruits and vegetables are needed, encourage them to drink water frequently and also a glass of milk, milk doesn't only help the bones but boost internal performance, low-fat milk won’t be bad too. 

 

5. ENROLL YOUR KIDDIES IN HOLIDAY CLASSES  

 

Your kiddies would have to be kept busy with some vacation classes where they can learn new chops/skills from their teachers or classmates, a place where they can have proper relaxation that would keep their minds in a happy state. New knowledge gained can enhance their coming literacy stage. Then, they can learn indeed more cultural chops/skills like sewing, hair timber/making, drawing, etc, and scientific chops/skills like electrical circuit construction and other intriguing stuff like learning new languages, incinerating, and so on. 

 

 6. TAKE NOTE OF THE TV STATIONS AND BOOKS YOUR KIDDIES ARE ENGAGED WITH  

 

This will depend on the age of your child, make the child watch stations that will help boost his/ her speaking capability like English, channels that would educate them through news, pictures like that of wild lives, history, sports, and intellectual pictures only for their age, the music occasionally to lighten up their moods. Teach also the act of reading, buy books that may cover stories, inspirational, vocabulary and indeed documentaries.  Be careful with your kiddie's engagements to avoid them being exposed to the wrong and bad events

 

 7. HAVE A PLAN FOR FAMILY OUTINGS 

 

 This is one essential thing you can do for your kiddies, they always want to be reminded that they're loved and accepted. Try as much as possible to take them out with you to places they can relate to, like shopping malls the village (where they can understand their origin and history) recreation centers mountain climbing, skating (if the family engages in traveling abroad for recesses), zoo, playhouses, and the list goes on, you may also use any cost-effective means to educate your child, like showing them foliage or generations while traveling and enlighten them on what you know about it, showing them a road, taking them to a ranch if you want them to have an idea on husbandry ( cropland, fish pond, etc), enlightening them by reading up nearly every signpost they see on the way or taking note of a particular structure, ground, etc, showing them statues and the stories behind them.
