Soccer Stadium
Kids nowadays are least interested in studying and watching the news. All they care about is that their video games and mobile phones whereby they can chat and play games and do nothing more. It doesn’t hurt them as children, but it is not great for their future. When they reach adulthood, they lack the ability to read current affairs that result in generating a sleepy nation.
It generates pressure on you as a parent because it becomes your duty to develop their interest in watching and reading information. To help you with this endeavor, I have come up with some unique ideas discussed below.
Before moving forward, let me tell you outdoor play isn’t involved and only indoor activities can help you with this task. However, you can do the actions below in open such as under a shade structure if you like.
The effective games such as the World Peace Game challenge to meet political goals in order to keep peace on earth. This game makes them conscious of what’s happening in what country and how the issues will be solved.
Use the World Map
The world map hung on your lounge or room can do more than simply decorating. It can serve as a tool to better understand the world events. When you hear some information, ask your kids to highlight the regions mentioned in the clip. This will help them examine how far the country is from them in which a problem is going on and help them visualize it geographically.
Make Your Own Podcast
Listen to this entertaining news when doing chores at home with your kids. After that, create a podcast about the event you heard with your children. In doing so, children research more about the event they are covering and utilize their understanding. This helps them in developing journalism skills along with making them aware of the world.
Discuss the News
For instance, you can highlight the subject of”Irma” that hit Florida. Take your kids’ view on that and ask them what can be done to improve the situation.
As a result, some other important news will even catch their eyes. This makes them busy in learning what’s happening in the world.
Tell Stories
While speaking generally at home, it’s good to tell some historical stories occasionally. For example, I told the Princess Diana story to my kids a few days ago and they asked a lot of related questions. By doing this, I realized they got to know about the British monarchy, which, in turn, helped them in learning about the history, culture, art, and different aspects of British life back then.
