Children are often placed around the four walls of the classroom to learn. But learning isn’t always all about mathematics, science, language, music, history and such. Learning envelopes other fields such as social skills and physical activities that may develop other aspects of the child’s growth. Sports such as karate, dancing, football/soccer, basketball, swimming and others can help a child grow physically, mentally, socially and emotionally.
Here are four reasons why a child should engage in sports:
Moving one’s body through sports and exercises give so many health benefits to people regardless of age or gender. Your respiratory, skeletal, muscular, cardiovascular and other body systems are strengthened through constant exercise. Children who exercise are less likely to be sick or get abnormalities in the body such as scoliosis.
Unleashing of potentials
Children are most likely to be their real selves when engaging in sports. Sports are just like major games to them and they may be dedicated enough to do well in the game. Coaches may see a budding talent with your child as he/she learns new skills. This might be a road for your child to have an early sports career or scholarships as he/she grows up.
Your child’s social skills are improved with sports. Most sports are played by teams, so if your child participates in team sports, he/she will be able to mingle with other children. He/she will also learn the value of friendship. Camaraderie is also taught to children through sports as they accept defeat or victory by shaking hands with their opponents.
Your child’s brain activity will improve with sports. Sports need strategies and focus. So if your child plays a sport as a hobby or as a possible career in the future, he/she will have improved mental processes. It won’t be hard for him/her to go to school once he/she has a sharp mind developed by sports.
