I think some one on one time always helps any child. When my kids were about that age--I would snag one and go sit on the bench on the front porch for about 15 minutes of time with just them--listening to them, talking to them, asking them about their opinions on food, plans, etc. It seems young but I think it helped both with behavior and with teaching them to think about the world around them.View Thread
My son's tea club starts on Monday. He also participates in Anime club. (sense a Japanese theme here?) He participates in the school band and has tutoring in Flute. My daughter has suggested she's joining a number of clubs on top of twice a week drama lessons. The youngest child seems to only have circus once a week.
I feel overscheduled--but I don't think they do. How do you determine if your child has joined one too many things? Or do you have a firm house rule?View Thread
