Build Your Child's Self Esteem Through Extracurricular Activities

Having your child participate in extracurricular activities is a great way to build up their confidence. Whether they're participating in an activity they enjoy or are developing a new talent, your child will benefit from after school activities. The Tutoring Center in Middletown has some tips to help boost your child's self esteem through extracurricular activities.

Play to Their Strengths

If your child already has an activity they like to participate in, keep taking them to classes or practices. By keeping them involved they will further develop or strengthen their skills in the area. If you're looking for something new, look to your child's strengths. If your child is creative, try an art class where they can formalize their skills. Something that comes naturally to your child will allow them to continue learning and be more confident.

Develop a New Talent

Sometimes children are scared to participate in activities that are new to them because they're afraid of not doing well. Encourage your child to try out a couple activities before committing to any. If your child is afraid of not being the best at their new activity, point out their progress and encourage them to keep learning. When your child notices how much they've improved, they will feel more confident.

Meet New Friends

While your child is participating in after school activities, they also have the opportunity for new social interactions. This interaction outside of school is a great way to boost your child's self esteem. Your child's new friends will share a passion for the same activity and can encourage your child to continue participating if they have difficulties.
