In the leisure time of kids, they should be motivated to participate in some team activities by their parents. However, others believe that children should learn how to keep themselves busy. In my opinion, group learning has more merits than self learning. This essay will explore both the sides of this.
To start with, group activities provide many opportunities that would enhance personal development of children such as communication skill and self confidence because they meet with different people and interact with them. Furthermore, as they participate in groups, they know the importance of team work and respect others viewpoints. Leadership quality comes when someone works in a team. For example, these kids are more socialised and more active and even perform better in their schools.
On the other hand, children can also manage their free time on their own. They can use their time according to their choice. This includes many leisure activities like games, painting, swimming and many more. They can manage their time and decide what they want to do in their free time. This develops their decision making process. Children who are managing their time on their own are self dependent. But sometimes, they spend their free time by playing games and using social media that leads to health problems such as obesity and depression.
To conclude, both views have their own benefits as they provide leadership quality and time management skill. However, organised group activities have more plus points because kids can learn different skills and good qualities from each others that necessary for one’s development.
