How to Help Your Child Get an Interest in Sports

A lot of children love sports, but sometimes you may find that your child just isn’t bothered. You may find that they don’t have any interest in learning the rules of a game and they may just want to go and have their own kind of fun. If you want your child to gain an interest in sports because of all the benefits that come with it then you can get some helpful hints and tips below.

Don’t Overdo Things

Sport is a huge deal and sometimes parents really can go too far. Some of them encourage the kids to have an intense focus on a single sport and this can really put pressure on everyone involved. If you try and encourage your child to invest in a single sport too much then this can make them resent it, but if you encourage them to invest in too many sports at once then they may not be able to invest enough time into each one. It’s a good idea for you to try and get your child involved in two or three sports at a time and this is a fantastic way for you to really encourage them to take part without causing too much pressure.

Don’t Over-Encourage

If your child pulls out a bat or club and they want to start to practice their swinging then encourage them but don’t try and turn the whole thing into a really heavy duty training session. Try and give them the chance to swing a couple of times without putting too much focus on strategy. You may even want to play catch for a while in-between, and have a bit of fun while you are at it. At the end of the day, sports should be fun and if you are not able to encourage them to have fun then you really can’t ever hope to help them with their genuine interest.

Give Them a Say

If your child has tried out a sport for the last couple of years then there is a high chance that they have gone on to develop some preferences as to what they would like to do. At this point, try and find out what interests they have. For example, if they have an interest in FCB Canada then you need to work with them to make sure that you are able to make this happen for them and this is a great way for you to really give them the support that they need to make their own decision. It may also be worth asking them what team they would like to join if there is more than one in your local area and this is a brilliant way for you to help them take control of their own destiny when it comes to sports and the effort that they put in.

So helping your child to get an interest in sports doesn’t have to be hard, and as long as you let them take the lead, you shouldn’t have any problems at all.

Hi all! I'm Tiffany from This Motherhood is Brought to You by Xanax and I am so excited to be a part of the Guest Post Swap and to be Amanda's swap partner! I love love love her idea on how to make indoor snowballs with egg cartons. I am definitely going to have to try that with my kiddos since my smallest one has decided that it has to snow for Christmas. Poor baby doesn't know snow is hard to come by in Alabama :( For my guest post I wanted to share a little DIY with you guys that involves duct tape!

What started out as a quick fix turned into a great idea. She loved her seat so much that she has now decided that her table has look cool too so being the smarty pants that she is, she tore her table!
