Encourage Your Kids To Play Sports

 By: Jenny Styles
Understanding what your child needs and giving them insight into what will help them out the most is an important part of learning to raise a child. Sometimes, this is not seen as easily as others, but it is important to keep the right influences in perspective. As a parent, one of the best things you can give your child is the ability to decide whether they want to play in sports.

Sometimes, encouraging your child to join a sport isn't as easy as it looks. Of course, as a parent, you understand the benefits of them going outside and being part of a physical activity. Most likely, you have also seen the benefits of working on a team and working towards accomplishing goals that are in sports specifically. This is important to keep in perspective with what your child needs. Even though you may see it as beneficial, it may not be to their benefit.

One of the most detrimental things you can do to your kid is force them to take a sport. At first, it is good to encourage them to try, and make your best efforts to getting them to all of the practices and all of the games. It is your position and your role to make sure that they participate in a physical activity, and specifically a sport, if you believe that it will be good for their mental and physical health.

The perspective of this is how much you should encourage your child to join a sport. If you force them to go to the sport, it may turn them off from physical activity. You will want to see why the child or youth doesn't want to join a sport, and find alternative routes to help them get physical activity. This can help them to overcome any problems they might be having with the physical sport. The important key is to help them find something that they love to play in order to enhance their physical activities.

If you want to make sure that your child is getting the exercise that they need, as well as some fundamental values, then encouraging them to join a sport is one of the best ways to do this. However, when you do this, you will want to make sure that you are offering them what is needed by them both physically and mentally. This will help to give them the support they need and encourage them to participate in the sport whole heartedly and effectively.

It was a clear, warm summer afternoon on Lake Chaubunagungamaug in Webster, Massachusetts. We were anchored in a quiet cove, playing a lively game of cribbage when I spotted a pair of eagles soaring high above us. It was as if they were playing a game of tag. Then suddenly one of the eagles headed straight down into the water and came back up with a big fish in its beak. He flew to a tall bushy pine tree nearby to enjoy his fresh catch.
Families today are all electronically connected. Facebook, Twitter and texting are the norm today. When I grew up such things were not available to us and many of us have “Happy Memories” of an earlier day. The younger generation today is losing its ability to create "Happy Memories" and I feel for them. Most of the younger generation have not had the chance to see the sun rise over a low hanging fog on a beautiful lake.
Summer time is here, let's enjoy all the activities that goes along with that and avoid pesky insects through prevention/treatment. The four ‘B’s of Summer; BBQ, Baseball, Beaches and Bugs! Like many of you, I have my favorite BBQ meal (Ribs) and favorite Baseball team (Tampa Bay Rays) and of course my favorite beaches (St. Petersburg-Belleair); but who has a favorite bug?
