Sports began for our kids around age six. That’s a bit late by some standards. There is so much that kids learn from participating in sports: determination, practice, teamwork, focus, motor skills, handling disappointment, dealing with conflict, decision making, following directions, self-confidence, and more. Besides, sports for kids can be just plain fun.
If you’ve not already signed your child up for spring soccer, little league or some other kids sports activity, then here is a list of options for you.Upward Sports i9sports Portland Parks and Recreation YMCA Youth Sports Lil’ Kickers
Your Kid Not Into Sports?
On the other hand, as a child, I was only moderately involved and interested in sports. That may be the case for your child. Plenty of kids enjoy hobbies involving science, theatre, music, and even magic. Yup! You guessed it. Magic was my jam.
A friend of mine is producing a magic camp for kids later this year. I’ll keep you posted on that. Meanwhile if your kiddo likes magic consider these books on my Amazon affiliate links. I own and have learned from them both. The first one includes video instruction and covers mostly close-up magic. The second book covers close-up and stage magic. (Using my links doesn’t cost you anything extra but sends me a little change.)
Motivating Your Child for Sports
How old should my child be when I start them in sports? Which sport is best for first-time kids? Multiple sports or just one? Focus on skill or…?
These and several other questions are addressed in a great article over at Red Tricycle. Click here to read it.
