Kids these days are least interested in reading and watching the news. All they care about is their video games and mobile phones whereby they can chat and play games and do nothing more. It doesn’t hurt them as children, but it is not great for their future. When they reach adulthood, they lack the ability to read current events which result in creating a sleepy nation.
It creates pressure on you as a parent as it becomes your responsibility to develop their interest in seeing and reading news. To help you with this endeavor, I’ve come up with some unique ideas discussed below.
Before moving forward, allow me to tell you outdoor play isn’t involved and just indoor activities can help you with this task. But you can do the activities below in open such as under a shade structure if you prefer.
The effective games like the World Peace Game challenge to fulfill political goals in order to keep peace in the world. This game makes them aware of what is going on in what country and how the issues will be solved.
Utilize the World Map
The entire map hung on your lounge or room can do more than simply decorating. It can function as a tool to better understand the world events. When you hear some news, ask your kids to highlight the regions mentioned in the clip. This will help them examine how far the country is from them where a challenge is going on and help them visualize it geographically.
Make Your Own Podcast
Listen to the entertaining news while doing chores at home with your children. In doing so, children research more about the event they are covering and use their understanding. This helps them in developing journalism skills together with making them conscious of the world.
Do hot debates on current events and involve your whole family in it. For instance, you can highlight the subject of”Irma” that recently hit Florida. Take your kids’ view on that and ask them what can be done to improve the situation.
Because of this, some other important news will also catch their eyes. This makes them busy in learning what is happening in the world.
Tell Stories
While talking normally at home, it’s great to tell some historical stories occasionally. By way of example, I told the Princess Diana story to my kids a few days back and they asked a lot of related questions. By doing this, I realized they must learn about the British monarchy, which, in turn, helped them in learning about the history, culture, art, and different areas of British life back then.
