This week we discuss the importance of teens having hobbies and activities to occupy their free time. We’ll look at an interesting study from the Department of Health and Human Services that details how teens spend their time throughout the day. We’ll look at some of the potential pitfalls of misspent free time by teens and we’ll talk about what productive downtime is and how it helps teens. We’ll also detail 10 significant benefits that teens gain through hobbies before finally taking a look at some of the hobbies and activities that Madison tends to enjoy.
This week we’re talking about the various things that Madison did this summer in quarantine. COVID-19 has seen the normal summer vacation time period turned on it’s head. With a summer filled with stay at home days it’s proven challenging to keep Madison occupied and entertained. Without the usual weekend trips, vacations and outdoor activities to draw on we had to get creative with different projects, virtual camps and other things to keep her challenged, engaged and motivated. We’ll discuss all of the things we’ve done to accomplish exactly that in this weeks episode.
In another of our question and answer series we talk about school, interests and activities. We’ll explore what aspects of school Madison enjoys the most, what classes she’s learning the most in, her favorite part of school and much more.
We’ll also talk about her hobbies, what video games she’s playing, her collecting hobbies, the music she likes to listen to and much more. We were joined this week by a viewer from Estonia who took advantage of the opportunity to pose some of their own questions in a unique two way conversation.
Summer is almost here and the excitement of school letting out and summary activities is all the buzz. This week Madison and Joe talk about what there is to do in the summer, the four common stages of summer vacation and offer some suggestions on what to do for day trips and for those stay at home days to help keep you motivated and make the hot summer months a little more enjoyable.
