My first time around the block as a mom, I was a hockey mom. It was on a dare! It was the best thing I ever did for my son. Now my grandson is learning to skate and my daughter is an aerial dancer. Organized athletics are a foundation for balanced growth. Whether is a soccer team meeting at the local park or high school football or a private dance team, the lessons learned with organized sports are priceless. Imagine the single mom, who tries her best but doesn’t have the time to teach her son to hit a baseball. Whether he is a natural or tries all season, his whole team will celebrate his first home run. He will feel the support of his team and the pride that a video game will never give him. The team will provide emotional support and positive feedback. He will also learn to handle disappointment and losing.
The magic of parenting is that being actively involved with your children about their life is important. Showing your pride in them and supporting them through their wins and defeats
As with most aspects of parenting, being actively involved and talking with your children about their life is very important. Being proud of accomplishments, sharing in wins and defeats, and talking to them about what has happened helps them develop skills and capacities for success in life. The lessons learned during children's sports will shape values and behaviors for adult life.
