Central board exams (ICSE, CBSE) have recently concluded. Kids have a good 3-4 months before their XIth grade starts. The question most parents have is “How do we keep our kid(s) gainfully occupied during this long gap?”
Many years ago I had written about how students in US were exposed to government’s day to day operations. Not sure how many politicians in India are open to having students workings in their offices. It would be wrong to say every politician is corrupt but I guess most of them are. We would not want our kids to be exposed to the workings of the 2G spectrum & other scams.
Making them work in a software company is very ‘stereotype’. Helping the needy through an NGO seems to be ideal.
Learning a new skill would be ideal. Learn a new language. Learn a new musical instrument. Just stay away from a smartphone!
Would love to hear from others for some cool ideas for our kids.
