The activities carried out by a child during the developmental process go a long way in building up in them, all they need for their adult lives.
Summer is here again; kids are totally school-free for the next 2-3 months. It’s not uncommon that most kids will resort to TV all day long. Their favorite shows that school made them miss must be covered for. But the screen is not the friendliest way to keep your kids busy; in fact, too much of the screen is injurious to their health.
It’s not news that children are the most valued possessions of responsible parents. And at all cost, they always want to protect their children from every possible danger. Unfortunately, these kids are the most vulnerable to dangers because of the carefree lifestyle they are susceptible to live. Without suspecting it and as against most adults who has the intellectual capacity to protect themselves, children expose themselves to a lot of dangers, especially pollutants that can be very injurious to their health.
