September 6, 2018 – Crisp Media CEO and mom of 3 Christine Pilkington was on CBC Vancouver talking about how to make sure you don’t over-program your kids during the school year.
Some of the top tips:
- Let your child lead you in what they are capable of handling and where their passions lie.
- Watch for signs of burnout in your kids.
- Talk to them honestly and make sure they know they can express how they feel.
- Don’t be afraid to let them play more than one sport at a time – it can make them a more well-rounded athlete.
- Make sure you give an activity enough time before you let your child pass or move on. Give it a timeline and reassess at the end.
