Coding offers new challenges and experiences
School-related challenges are often accompanied by stress and the pressure to be the best. With coding as a hobby, kids can enjoy the process of learning something new without feeling discouraged at being bad initially. Coding even help kids get out of their comfort zone. Coding also offers you different types of challenges than kids are used to.
Coding allows you to explore yourself and your talents
Kids never really know what they’re capable of unless they try something. Hobbies help kids discover what they’re good (and bad) at and might surprise them. For example, kids might assume that they would never like math because they find it is tiresome to learn at school, and it seems like a waste of time. But if kids learn to code, they may discover that they love math and have a particular talent for applying math principles logically and being successful with the subject.
Coding can help improve their future career
Having coding as a hobby helps you learn how to handle school-life stress and think creatively. A hobby can also help decrease kids’ chances of becoming burned out at school. If their entire routine consists of school and home, with no other stimulation to their brains, kids will get bored. Having a hobby can help improve their focus and drive while kids are at school because it will take away from time outside of school that kids are not engaging their minds. It also shows teachers and future universities that they have passions and a drive to do something with their time.
A hobby prevent kids from wasting time and building bad habits
Having good hobbies to fill up free time makes kids less likely to spend their idle time on harmful activities or bad habits. Hobbies give kids something to do when they are unable to find something to fill their time. Coding also gives kids something to look forward to. Kids may discover that coding as a hobby can become a source for extra income as they mature. Kids may even get the chance to turn coding into a full-time job.
