Louisville Mom Collective Team Tips to Consider when Choosing the Best Activities for your Kids:

Time Commitment: When considering adding on to your child’s school schedule, be sure to try and find activities that are ideal for everyone’s schedules. Some activities meet once a week. Some activities allow you to sign up monthly or seasonly. Be sure to read policies regarding making up or rescheduling!

Location and Budget: While your child may fall in love with a particular activity, look around for an activity that is either close to their school or close to your home. Sitting in traffic after a busy day at school and at work can be a challenge after a month!

Considering choosing one activity per season. It’s easy to sign up for all the activities. But after factoring in cost, logistics, and flexibility, it’s sometimes easier to have one activity to focus on at a time.

Listen to your child! As parents, we tend to gravitate to what we like. Listen to your child. Their interests may change, so be sure to consider their input.
