Why You Should Encourage Your Child to Play Sports!

“An apple a day keeps the doctor away,” but so can a few games of sports!

Playing sports has so many benefits! Not only are sports good for your child’s physical health, it can also provide them with emotional, mental, and interpersonal benefits.


Physical Health

Staying physically active is an essential part of living a healthy lifestyle. Being active and participating in physical activities like playing sports can help improve balance, flexibility, mobility, and improve bone health. It can also help to maintain a healthy weight, which is important in maintaining the overall health of your body.

Studies and data have recently shown that obesity is becoming a major issue among children but being active can help avoid this harmful health issue. Playing sports also contributes to the development of your child’s motor skills.


Mental Health

Playing sports can help build your child’s self-esteem and self-confidence and make them feel more confident in what they do outside of their sports team as well. It can help them build trust in themselves and their capabilities and help to motivate themselves in everything they do.

In fact, researchers have found that physical activities, like sports, play a strong role in the strengthening of a child (or adults) self-worth.


Interpersonal Skills

When playing sports, children are exposed to the concept of sportsmanship, friendship, and being a part of a team. These concepts can help to contribute to the development of a child’s social skills, communication skills, and problem-solving skills which are all important and useful skills to have for anyone.

Being a part of a team can help children learn how to cooperate with others and how to interact with others in different situations. It can also help your child grow and build relationships.


Emotional Health

According to Aspen Project Play, children who play sports show superiority in emotional characteristics like attitude, attention, and concentration. Children who play sports also show a higher ability for following rules and respecting others.

Other emotional health benefits that can come from participating in sports include improved mood, lower stress levels, better concentration and classroom performance, and a better understanding of rules and boundaries.

Encouraging your child to participate in sports can be beneficial to their overall health and growth and can be the starting point for them leading healthy lifestyles into their adulthood. It is never too early to encourage healthy choices for a healthy and happy life!
