Nothing is interesting – the main problem when choosing a hobby

The peculiarity of the formation of interests in modern children lies in low interest at the start and inconstancy of tastes. Parents lose their temper when the child once again declares that he no longer wants to attend the circle and read, you need to find another one. And when asked about what he would like to do, he shrugs his shoulders apathetically and does not give a specific answer. Why is this happening?

Clip thinking
Modern children have ceased to memorize complex information. They have Google and Wikipedia, which are always at hand. By the way, this is a huge problem, according to psychologist A. Kurpatov. After all, the trend towards figurative perception and primitivization of online content leads to a decrease in the brain’s ability to analyze, logic, and conceptual thinking.

To captivate a child, you need to influence his system of perception with the simplest images – those that do not need to be thought about for a long time. Information and must be presented quickly, brightly, on a slide. The average time of concentration of attention in children 10-13 years old is 8 seconds. If the object is not interested, the child will not concentrate on it longer.

Changing hobbies is okay
Parents, be patient, because you will have to come to terms with the leapfrog of the interests of your children.

A child who from an early age is very passionate about something is immersed in some kind of favorite thing – a rarity, almost an endangered species. Now school-age children are dominated by a state of constant search – what hobby to choose and what to focus on? And this has its advantages: a superficial acquaintance with different areas leaves a good foundation for the future. You can always return to the previously considered type of activity and deepen your knowledge.

Oh, and broadening your horizons. Even those crumbs of information that a child will receive in a couple of months of visiting, for example, an aircraft modeling studio, will help him at least keep the conversation going about this lesson and, tell something interesting, give advice.

And further. Try to find out the true reason why the child stopped going to the circle, section. Perhaps the loss of interest is just a formal reason. But in fact, he did not have a relationship with a teacher or a children’s team. Maybe classes have the wrong time and place. Get to the bottom of the real reason and only then draw conclusions.
