Is it for the child or is it image? Do you have a long term vision for your child or is it the child's vision? Is it to build confidence? To give them something to do? To have friends? Does it really make a difference in the long term?

My kids aren't in any activities. We can't afford it and I would have no way to get them to anything since I don't have a car. There is a boys and girls club in the next town over that offers bus service right from the school but I'd rather they come home. They don't get home until 4pm as it is, dinner is at 5pm and then they have to come in and do their reading at 7pm to be in bed by 8pm. That's only 4 hours they are home during the day.
When we lived in Chicago they did classes at through our park district. I limited them to 1 or 2 a term (they met for 1 hour each week) because with all the kids it was too much running back and forth from home to the park. They only signed up for stuff that interested them because it was fun.
