Why Every Kid Should Play a Sport Sports have long been an integral part of society. All you have to do to prove that statement is to look at your local newspaper to find the sports section, full of news on a wide variety of sports. We see commercials everywhere with athletes endorsing a particular product, the most common of which are shoes. Let’s face it, the realm of sports is alive and well, and it isn’t going to go away anytime soon. And for many people, the allure of being regarded as the GOAT (greatest of all time) is more than enough to get them off their couches and on the training grounds, whichever their training grounds may be. There is a real market in the athletics industry and anyone who is found to be worthy of the big leagues is sure to get a shot at a life of fame and fortune. But that isn’t the true soul and purpose of why you might want your kids to engage in sports. In fact, there a danger in forcing your kids to engage in sports when they don’t want to. But for those kids who do want to, these are but a few of the benefits that they’re bound to enjoy: Psychosocial Development Children who belong to a sports team develop a new social circle outside of school. This grants them an opportunity to forge new friendships. This is especially true when you look at modern society where most interactions are done online. When your child interacts with teammates, they are learning to engage in more meaningful interactions as well as learning to move around in the real world. Sports teach children the essentials of teamwork and cooperative efforts. Discipline and Respect  Sports are governed by rules as well as proper technique. This allows children to learn to respect authority and to develop discipline through the drills and routines that they undergo during training. It is also here where kids learn to take constructive criticism and to view it as a main ingredient in their development as a person. Grit and Dedication It’s no secret that sports can be dangerous sometimes. One of the most important traits that the modern adult should have in order to be competitive in the world is persistence and dedication, and the realization that hard work does indeed pay off. However, it’s important to draw the line between harm dealt during the normal course of a sporting event and negligence. The latter is unacceptable and you need to take a closer look at the injured child. You may even consider asking for legal assistance. Increased Self-Esteem Your self-esteem grows with how much you’re able to accomplish. And even when your child isn’t particularly good at his or her chosen sport, the cheers from the crowd, the praises from the coaches for a valiant effort, and the high-fives from fellow teammates are bound to help increase a child’s confidence. These little affirmations all lead to an ultimate development of a child’s belief in their own skills and abilities. Not only that, but an affiliation to a sport also helps a child establish self-identity. To say that “I am a football player” or “I do Taekwondo” both help cement a child’s pride and self-identity.
