Peculiarity of leisure organization of the school age children
Article devoted to assessing the conditions and leisure of school children.Based on the study and evaluation of the hygienic conditions and recreation of children of school age a number of adverse factors that may adversely affect the health of children are identified Overall health of children depends not only on educational factors, but also on the learning environment at home and leisure and recreation. It is found out, that almost half of respondents (42.01±2.16 %) prefer spending leisure time at the computer, which provokes in pupils complaints of feeling unwell (47.27±2.19 %). Children holding considerable time at the computer and watching television may be due more to the fact that most of pupils (68.02±2.05 %) at the weekends stay at home, 12.50±1.45 % of children spend the weekend in rural areas and only a small percentage of respondents traveled with family or walk in the city (10.03±1.32 %) and in the country (9.45±1.28 %). The highest percentage of complaints was registered among children of secondary school age (47.27±2.19 %). The share of children of primary school age and older who complained was 27.27±1.95 % and 25.45±1.91 % respectively. It is defined, that among reasons of complaints of children in all age-related groups the predominant was long studies at school (42.59±2.17 %). Second place among reasons of children’s complaints occupies the long performance of a home task (30.09±2.01 %) and the third place occupies physical activity at the lessons of physical culture (27.18±1.95 %). It is determined, that 50.0±2.19 % of children does homework at the writing desk which does not suit for it, which could affect the formation of correct posture and quality of homework. The valuation of working place of children during the performance of a home assignment allowed setting reliable cross-correlation between disparity of working place of hygienic requirements of schoolchildren and presence of complaints (r=0.45, p<0.05). Prospects for further research the author considers in the assessment of leisure of children who are engaged in sports sections.
