A little joy in anyone’s life can go a long way. Allowing children to explore their interests and support their hobbies is a great way to invest in your child’s joy. Studies have shown that children who have 1-3 hobbies have a positive outlook on life, experience less stress and depression, and have increased academic performance. Creating joy can be as simple as reading a book or spending quality time with family playing games. It’s important to create intentional, joyful experiences for children so that they have a resource to turn to when they are feeling down.
