Your child is now able to process information and express his views well. Complex thinking and proper planning are newly developed cognitive skills. With this cognitive ammunition, he is able to hone his skills in particular activities where he feels competent and confident enough to do well. You will see him going for any organized sports, music, art, etc.
What you need to know
Parental guidance is still vital. Help your child find what’s appropriate for him.
Communication is the key here. When you see your child showing preference for an activity, ask him what’s exciting about the activity? Why he wants to pursue it? Inputs from teachers will also help you take the right decision.
