There are lots of benefits to having your child involved in extracurricular activities, but for Denise Richards, there are rules when it comes to deciding on activities for daughters Sam, 7, Lola, 6, and eventually, baby Eloise.
“At all times my girls must be involved in two activities — one physical and one creative,” Richards writes in her blog. “Once they choose their activities, they have to stick with them until the end of the season or session they signed up for. If they decide they don’t like them after that, they can choose another for the next time.”
Currently, Sam is enrolled in soccer and chorus and Lola is doing chorus and ballet.
To enforce the “Two Activities Rule” in your own home, Richards suggests presenting a list of physical (basketball, dance, or karate) and creative (music lessons, Girl Scouts/Boy Scouts, or ceramics) activities to your children and letting them choose one of each.
“If money is an issue, there are always lots of inexpensive ways to get your kids involved through school or local community centers,” Denise advises.
