Your Children’s School Plays Really Do Matter
Your children’s school plays really do matter. There’s nothing like coming home after a hectic day at the office. You suddenly realize today is the school play. It’s so easy to disregard it, but your child needs you there to support them every step of the way. When your child is part of activities, including school plays, they will have a boost in their self-esteem and confidence. It is so important to find creative ways to give children the tools need to succeed. School plays are just as important as soccer, music lessons and dance recitals. They need you there to cheer them on. School plays are an opportunity to encourage your child and actively listen to her/him.
These days there’s so much focus on oral presentations and speeches. With many classroom assignments, students as young as first grade, are required to present book reports and projects in front of the entire class. The school plays help to foster positive self-image and confidence. When you support your child’s role in the school play, whether it is a minor or major role, you are doing your child a lot of good. This will lead to better grades and enhanced work ethic.
Children are so eager to be a part of something. They want more than anything to make you proud. Usually there are tryouts for various parts in the school play. Encouraging your child to step out of their comfort zone, and go for a part, will give them necessary life skills to succeed throughout grade school and beyond.
