    With my son I chose activities that I think he's interested in. He's active boy so I put him in swimming classes plus it's very important as the building we live has private pool, he's inquisitive and annoyed me alot in the kitchen, I put him in cookery lesson (he LOVES it). I dont know yet withh DD I havent seen what she's really interested in but she's active and likes outdoors activities probably swimming too.

    Oh that is great! Is it a specialised place, as in private, or is it something your local childcare offers for everyone?

    I'm too nervous to answer the poll, I don't like thinking.

    But I'm not huge on extra-curricular. We did swimming and I'd like to get him back in for lessons for obvious life-saving reasons.

    I did netball when I was younger and I don't recall my brother doing any extra curricular until high school. Mum taught us art, dad taught us languages, dad taught us how to cook and neither of us were ever big on sport anyway. My brother has a creative mind when it comes to music and only did a few piano lessons before picking it up and taught himself guitar. I figure if someone's 'meant' to do something whether it be physical or creative they will ask.

    My DS does sport after school because he's such an active boy but I'll never make him do anything extra curricular if he doesn't want.

    Im super super happy to say that we have found an organizations for main****** kids that allow my son with autism to participate in! Little athletics!!! And im super super proud to say that my little guy is giving it a go!!! Theres no teams haha so thats why he agreed to trying it out, he doesnt talk with anyone else yet, but he can run and he can jump and the look on his face of how proud he is when he tells people he does a sport is the best thing ever!!!!! Totally worth it just for that.

    I can't pole as I'm on my phone.

    Dd1 aged 4 does swimming and tumbling/trampling. Swimming will only continue until she can swim confidently unless she want to continue. Tumbling started as she had a gross motor delay and the physio recommended it, but she loves it so will keep going.

    When she is 6 she will start in cubs as we are a very outdoor family and it is something we can get involved in as a family.

    We have decided one sport/dance activity at all times but she can choose which. music lessons which her primary school when she goes does after school ( she would be at after school care anyway) .

    These are what I did and enriched my life lots and what my husband believes he missed out on so much.

    Dd2 is 20months and will start swimming and an activity at 3 like her sister ( she wishes she could now!)

    All three do swimming which is (in my opinion) very important. The girls also do dancing (calisthenics) but I'm not sure if I'm going to keep them in there neyear or not, depends on money. I'd like for them to learn an instrument too but maybe when they're older. They are getting a kids' drumset for Xmas and an electric piano so maybe they can learn (or teach themselves) for a bit for the time being.
