Not all kids like sports. Don’t be surprised or concerned. I strongly support that all kids should participate in some type of exercise program for their physical fitness and health, whether it be a group sport such as football, baseball, basketball, hockey or soccer or an individual one, like walking, running, dance, gymnastics, swimming, or martial arts. It can be just for fun or more for competition.
Allowing your child to find his passion is key. Maybe he is interested in the arts or music… Any group activity requires harmony and chemistry between individuals to produce something greater than the sum of its parts. Sports, music and other activities are training grounds for life. The lessons your child learns, beyond the skill of the activity, are endless: teamwork, leadership, commitment, physical strength, motivation, preparation, mental toughness, and confidence. With continued practice, learning and support, he is creating and growing into a powerful person. As a parent & professional, I would view that as a ta-dah!
Learn how the See It. Say It. Do It! process can help you and your child experience the “Ta-Dahs” of life!
