We are all born with the need to “belong” to something. We have an instinct to be accepted into a group, and we naturally want others to be proud of us.
Since this is part of our human nature, we need to recognize it and nurture it in the most positive way possible. We as parents have the power to help influence those choices for our kids while they are still young.
Getting kids involved with some type of group, whether they play kids sports or get involved with some other organization, is the best way to keep them out of the wrong crowd of kids or a gang that could start them down the wrong path in life.
The busier you kids are, the less time they have to do wrong. Not only do they stay busy, but they enjoy it!
So what sport do our kids like to play? Our answer is “several”!
See, every time I think that one of my boys has found their favorite sport, they find another one they like too.
Each sport has its own fascinating twist of rules and they vary upon being more individual or team oriented.
We tend to play kids sports that have more individual time to see our children shine! Even though most sports do involve a team, some allow your child more individual attention than others.
