The theater is a good alternative to prevent children from being exposed to the television or computer for a whole weekend. As responsible parents, we must watch our children's free time, guide and motivate them to participate in healthy and entertaining activities. Taking them to the theater is a good option.
Children should not be taken to the theater just so they are not devoted to technology all day. The theater opens the doors to creation, tale and history. The experiences of sense, attention, vision, and hearing, provide a artistic and cultural wealth to the kids. There are different types of children's works.
Classic stories, musical works, different dances, are some of the styles offered by children's theater and children will surely be more attracted to one or the other. The theater makes the child exercise his own thinking as he tries to understand what the play means. The best age to start taking children to the theater is from 3 or 4 years old.
At first, they will have difficulty understanding what is meant in the play. When they are very young, it is recommended that before arriving at the theater, we explain what the theater is like, what play they will see, the actors and how theater differs from television or cinema, for example. As they grow older, children learn more.
The important thing is that you always take your child to see a work that is directed towards his age, and thus achieve adequate interest and attention.
