School year is about to end, so aside from the long awaited vacation of our kids, we as parents always wanted to make sure that our kids will have a meaningful summer vacation. When I was a kid I remember freely running in our backyard and playing with other kids and that is where I develop my social skills and exercise my sportsmanship in different games that we played. The entire duration of my vacation during my childhood were spent in playing with friends outdoor, household chores, visiting my cousins or relatives who lived far from us and ofcourse watch my grandmother cook our favorite dishes for me to learn her craft.
Generation may pass but kids nowadays still need to develop their skills, hobbies, socialize and enhance whatever talent they may have, so aside from going to the beach or spending the whole day in front of the computer it would help if we introduce our kids in other activities that they can unleash their hidden talents and at the same time help them improve their physical and emotional well-being.
Here are five ways to create the most meaningful summer for your child without depriving them of their "me time":
First, vacation does not mean that our kids needs to stay at home and do nothing at all, give them chores, and allow them to play outside, it's a way of developing their sense of responsibility and allowing them to have outdoor activites for them to develop physical well-being.Try bringing the kids to the nearest resorts and let them learn more about nature.
Second, give them goals for their summer vacation. A simple garage sale would help, sorting out their old stuff and earning money through it, in this way they can learn the value of money and help them become responsible in their finances.
Third, is to Create a special bond between you and your child. The most crucial factor in raising our kids starts at home, play with your kids, spend time with them and have activities that will create memories that they will cherish when they grow old and this will help in their emotional well-being.
Fourth, Time management, as early as now teach them how to manage their time properly so when they grow old this will help them manage their priorities and they can be more productive, you can start by allowing them to create their own weekly schedule at home.
Lastly, Help them develop their talent and acquire new skills, you can monitor them closely during their vacation and as a parent you will notice the talents and skills that your kids posses, we should not take this for granted as this can be their edge in life when they grow old and the most important thing above all is to see our kids do and excel with what they love to do.
That is the same reason why this coming summer vacation, I will spend time and support my daughter in what she loves to do, good thing is that Promil iShine Talent Camp 7 has a lot to offer this year and arts is one of them, which my daughter truly loves.
Aside from visiting our relatives in the province this summer, visiting the museum, doing some gardening and having picnic in the park or going to the beach, I made sure that Chelsea would be able to enhance her talent and develop her other abilities too, I want to support her all the way on what she want and I think we can start by joining Promil iShine Talent Camp 7.
She happen to choose Art Camp which she vocally mentioned to me before the enrollment at the camp which will be handled by Mr Robert Alejandro, owner of Papemelroti. I know this camp will allow my daughter to hone her talent in arts and crafts.
Promil iShine Talent Camp 7 also has different camps that your kids can join, they have the Music Camp which is led by Maestro Ryan Cayabyab, the Ballet Camp is led by Ms Lisa Elizalde-Larrazabal and while the Dance Camp is being led by Teacher Georcelle of G force and these talent camps will be held in key cities in the country like Manila, Davao, Batangas and Cebu.
A lot of kids from the previous batches of the Promil I-Shine camp really showed exceptional talents and really sparkled through the years and one of them is Ms. Shaira Luna who at the age of two already knows the different branches of Sciencce and she can play various musical instruments such as piano and violin. She was featured in Wyeth's infant formula ad in 1995. Today Shaira Luna is a fashion and advertising photographer that is represented by an internatoinal creative talent agency Jed Root Manila. Esang De Torres also known as The Little Broadway Diva "Mini Lea Salonga" was also a Promil Pre-School I-Shine Talent Camp 3 Grand Prize winner. She also joined various talent shows. She's the youngest artist to stage a major solo concert in the Philippines at the age of 9.
