As a parent, I’m sure you want your kid to grow up to become a good person, who is successful and happy. Research shows that kids who are a part of sports do better in school than kids who are not. Involvement in sports also increases the likelihood of secondary and post-secondary graduation.
The valuable skills learnt by kids in the participation of sports are transferable into the business world as well as the academic realm. To be a part of a sport is to be a part of a team and you learn how to work with others to achieve your goals through hard work and grit. The ability to do such things will assist your child tremendously in their career.
Especially when they are older this healthy lifestyle will benefit their stress levels as well as improve their overall mood with their body’s release of dopamine through exercise. Kids involved in sports are happier and healthier, they are also more likely to continue to live active lifestyles later in life.
