Working out and stretching our body is good to create a healthy well-being and a fit body and mind. One factor also is the fast growing technology and the transformation of the way of life style we have today where people are on to gadgets, online and virtual games in which they will just sit and look at in the big screen. Thus less kids get involve in physical activities like sports.
Experts recommend that children must get at least one hour of moderate to heavy activity every day in order to achieve the benefits of engaging in physical activities.
One question is, what if your kids don’t find playing sports enjoyable or worth it. Another question will be, how can you convince them to involve in playing sports and enjoy the health perks of it? First, allow your kids to pick and choose the sports they want to play. They will likely to embrace the activity if they find it enjoyable and fun. It is not necessary to let them join in school soccer, hockey, and basketball or volleyball team. It may be good to start in individual sports such as swimming, long or table tennis, dancing, or even in karate. In case, you child doesn’t show interest in any specific activity, you can search and look in the internet some best sports for kids. Give all the important support to your child not just money but also moral and emotional support.
This can be in the form of letting them watch in TV or in live the sports and allow them to experience the fun and joy. You can also buy them their favorite jersey or gear of the sports. It is either the coach will get you child make love or hate the sports. You can get some referrals from other parents whose child is being trained by a specific coach.
Fourth, create a routine that is stress-free. Adding some loads to the child aside from their academics may seem overwhelming and stressful. Gladly, parents can prevent it by creating a practical and simple stress-free home and school routine.
This can by promising something in the end of the process. Incentive does not necessarily mean expense. You can give simply but valuable rewards that they will appreciate.
There are a lot of physical, psychological health and social benefits to kids. And also find time to ask your kids about the things they want and they don’t want.
