Many kids with learning and attention issues may have times when they feel like they’re “not good at anything.” Their challenges can lower their self-esteem and make school a stressful place. But extracurricular activities are a great way for kids to focus on their strengths and passions instead. These activities can build up a child’s confidence. They can help him improve his social skills, develop his interests and inspire him to try new things. They’re also a good way for a child who struggles in school to learn in a fun, low-stress environment.
