In my previous post, I mentioned a few of the wonderful benefits of woodworking in the classrooms. In this post, I’m going to share a few more benefits.
Once children graduate from the execution of basic designs, they will be dealing with more intricate ones. As they push themselves to accomplishing such kind of designs, they acquire dexterity which is very much needed in the performance of more demanding (mentally and physically) activities. Examples of these are learning a new sport and learning a new language.
Children who are easily stressed or depressed can also find refuge in woodworking. As they discover what their creative hands can do, their attention is diverted from gloomy stuff towards to more worthwhile things. Instead of taking anti-depressants, they are able to cope with depression the natural way. More so, children feel a sense of fulfillment. This can erase the doubt or fears that are causing them to be very insecure and sad.
Lastly, talent and skills like woodworking is an additional credential which can be listed in one’s resume. If your children continue on this activity as they become adults, they will reap its rewards when they are set to seeking for employment or putting up a business.
