Now, hunting is not only for adults but also for children who want to try it. As long as under the supervision of an adult this activity is not a dangerous thing. Besides, providing the best crossbow for the child also helps improve security while learning to hunt. Well, hunting itself for children also has benefits, what are they?
1. Control the balance of the child’s body
Some children have problems with body balance and coordination. Balance is very important for success in archery because they must be able to hold the body while aiming and preparing to open fire.
By practicing archery, this will help them to gain control over balance when focusing on aiming the target. The more children practice, the core muscles get used to balancing their bodies.
2. Teach patience to children
With regular archery training, children learn to refrain from being in a hurry when releasing arrows toward the target. This will form the character of children who are patient and do not just as quickly reach the target.
3. Train the child’s focus power
When doing so, children are required to aim at targets from as far as precisely as possible, so that they can indirectly practice the power of focus between the child’s mind, emotions, and psychomotor movements. While the power of focus is very important for children’s mental health. The more they focus on the target, the easier it will be for them to clear their mind and aim precisely.
4. Strengthen the child’s hand muscles
In this activity, the child must be able to put pressure on both hand muscles, chest muscles, shoulders, and back. If they are trained to move and direct the crossbow, then the little hand’s muscles will be stronger and more flexible.
5. Getting high confidence
In general, children who are active and like sports will get high self-confidence. Likewise, with this activity, they can indirectly shoot archery that has its charm. This can be caused by their confidence to be able to reach the target.
The level of confidence gained by children from this hunting activity will affect their daily activities. If children consistently practice archery, they can get the five benefits above. Even this activity can also be used as a therapy to cope with super active children to be calmer.
