Should your preschooler play sports?
- 7 Months ago
Are you wondering if you should make your child play sports? Many parents are not too sure if it's right to enroll their kids in sports between the ages of 2- 5 years. Different parents have different philosophies about sports.
According to studies, it is always better to observe your kid's interest in sports and then enroll him/her according to his/her interest rather than forcing something on them. On the other hand, if you restrict your kid from playing sports thinking he is too young for it, then watch out... you may be discouraging your kid, and this can end up with him being less confident in his future years. Playing sports have several other benefits like development of motor skills, eye and hand/leg co-ordination, balance and development of an attitude that is positive.
