when considering learning a hobby

When studying compulsory education or for a trade or profession, some requirements, dates, and penalties can make said explore stressful or unpleasant. In theory, learning a hobby should not happen since there is no obligation. Learning a hobby should be enjoyable, challenging, or even fun. If this is not the case, something is wrong, either the teacher or the student, and it should be reviewed.

On the other hand, not everything is always fun, exciting or relaxing in hobbies. Like any activity, it can have some negative aspects that must be known and assumed. If, for example, you want to learn to play the piano, it is reasonable that you have to learn some music theory. This essential learning can seem dry and unrelated to what one wants, and then one must assume when one knows to work later, that the end justifies the means and that something must be sacrificed to have fun later. The advantage is that if the unpleasantness is excessive, there is nothing serious about giving up, except perhaps a useless waste of money and time and a possible frustration and discouragement that should be easily overcome.

However, for these reasons and to avoid hobby failure, it is for this reason that one must try to choose well what one wants, just as it happens in working life. In this sense, it is interesting to know the duration and levels of difficulty of said learning before choosing the hobby or starting to learn it.

It is necessary to highlight parents’ and educators’ unique roles in children or young people. In these cases, the responsibility falls on them to deduce what may be more convenient for the child, considering that a good hobby can benefit life. And to correctly choose the way of learning.

Something similar can happen with therapists who decide for people with limitations or with relatives or caregivers of older adults with an impairment who cannot make good decisions for themselves.

In conclusion, the main points to consider when considering learning a hobby are:

1-Learning a hobby should be pleasant, although there may be frustrating moments.

2-You must set a realistic goal and choose between essential learning, intermediate or advanced level.

3-It is convenient to know, before starting, the duration, difficulties and cost of learning the hobby that interests us.

4-Parents and educators play an essential role in the learning of children and young people.
