If you are like most parents, you are anxious to make good use of your child's time during summer. Every year, we get an influx of calls from parents asking for summer activities. So, how can you enrich your child’s summer, especially from home, this year? We have the answer!
In one summer, your child could learn a new skill that builds confidence, improves critical thinking, and prepares them for professional and personal success in the future.That skill is coding. If you have considered learning to code as an enrichment activity for your child, then the summer is a golden opportunity and you shouldn’t miss. Here is why: Learning any new skill is challenging at first.
– You get stuck on the mechanics. – You waste time on dead-ends. – You keep forgetting things you learned. – You get confused about concepts you thought you understood.It’s frustrating, but once you persevere through it, you start to get the hang of it.
– You start figuring things out. – Every tiny-success deepens your interest. – You get engaged with the challenge in front of you. – You start creating things that you feel proud of.Learning becomes fun. You're on a roll. You have survived the interest dip. Any child can learn to code. But not every child survives the dip. Besides having an interest, what is the most important thing a child needs in order to survive the dip of learning to code? TIME.
– Time to practice coding. – Time without distractions. – Time without competing priorities. – Time without impending deadlines.3-week summer classes. Your child can learn to code with a live teacher and build a game or website every class.
