  Extra School Activities  
     
  When you organize your kids extra school activities it's important not to overload them. You must remember that they have a long school timetable, if we overload them with activities we could risk collapsing them.  
     
  The trick is finding a balance, experts say that you shouldn't organize extra school activities more than 2 days a week, maximum 3. It's best to avoid these at weekends, kids need time to think and even to get bored, boredom activates creativity in children.  
     
  When choosing the activities try and let your kids have the last work, parents should suggest the activities taking into account the kids needs and preferences but you should never impose them. Don't make the mistake of trying to get your kids to do the activities you would have liked to do as a child.  
     
  Sometimes the activites are used to keep the children occupied while the parents work, this is a good idea as long as the timetable is not abussive.
