Madilyn Hall takes riding lessons once a week on her her 4 legged friend Turbo. The freedom and joy she finds during her activity has her focusing more on her responsibilities and duties at home. Her mother even claims a new found willingness for both chores and homework! How do extracurricular activities affect or enrich your home? Leave your thoughts after the jump...
Madiyln's mother Angie, makes sure to enrich her daughter's life as often as possible. It could be through books, artwork or even cooking, but she is also a firm believer in making her home as happy as possible by participating in extra activities away from her living space.
We think it's a great solution for those who might have a small square footage and lack the giant backyard, garage or driveway that others might have. Although these things can bring freedom to a child without leaving home, if your space doesn't allow for such luxuries, activities like Madilyn's riding lessons are a great way to balance things out.
Angie claims Madilyn is more focused on her school work and doesn't show the same hesitation when it comes to lending a hand. Does your family have extracurricular activities? Share your story in the comments below!
