Should parents help children in art and craft?
May 24, 2016 10:39am CST
My son has art and craft in Class V. He has different tasks. It is like using the buttons of shirts and making an elephant. It is like using marbel papers and making dolphins. It is like making snowdoll with thermocol and cotton. All these tasks children themselves cannot do. So they require help. I help my son.

I find that a rather strange situation. If *all* tasks are too difficult for children, you should talk to the teacher and ask why they don't choose things children of that age group can do themselves. A child wants to enjoy what they themselves have accomplished without anybody's help. Besides, it's an unfair teaching method. Not all parents have the time to help their children or are talented enough to do so.

Thanks Maluse for the suggestion. What the teachers do in class is show how to do the easy craft. The difficult ones are the ones which are given in home work. They are marked also. So the children dont have alternatives they ask suggestions from their parents.

Yes, working together on a project is a wonderful way to bond with a child and enhance learning. Great fun can be had when a parent guides a child in completing a project. As long as both parent and child contribute to the creating of the project all will be well.
