the local Parks And Recreation Programs to test things out before making that large investment.
Once you decided that you do want to really “do” a sport/thing, try asking the family for the “gift of activity” for birthday or
holiday presents. A little money from a few people can really
add up and counter that $125 a month Karate Fee
or that $600 a year Ballet class.
Even $60 a month for piano lessons adds up!
It is SO much better than that toy with a billion parts
(that they only play with for a few weeks)
and is an investment in their future.
Sarah did Karate for 2 years and jumped up a few belt levels. Her schedule is simply too hectic – especially with modeling jobs being added in – so something had to go.
I seriously couldn’t recommend it more for anyone who has “focus” issues.
It’s another way to simplify life a little.
