Why should parents encourage their children to take a break?
Free time and school time need to be viewed as equally important. Allowing kids to enjoy unstructured time and provide them with the space to do whatever they want during this period can actually do wonders for their overall personality development.
They could engage in play, hobbies, recreational activities or taking time off to just rest. This can be very helpful in relieving the stress that is built up in them due to daily school routines.
