If you child is ignoring your push to turn to physical sport try to indulge with them but do not just let it be.

- Physical well being:

- Learn socializing:
Child therapists often are reached out by distraught parents and 90% of them come with the same issue- kids are not social.
Remember this is no disorder.
Are you worried that why your child is not social? Video games, TV and all have secluded the kids from the real world. You are the only one who can make them realize what socializing is, but throwing a party will not work. Take them out, make them watch how kids play and interact. Playing naturally develops social skills and team spirit in the kids. Just be patient. They may resent, come back crying or hitting some child but you’ve just got to be patient. It is a completely self learning process.
- Self esteem:
Kids are wonderful at picking up sports. You may not even have to urge them to learn. As they learn and excel at the sports, make sure you as a parent or coach encourage them for the efforts. The words of encouragement do not only make them confident in sports but effects their entire personality. They build up a self esteem and sportsman spirit that is going to help them in long run.
- Sportsman Spirit:
Did you know sportsman spirit does not just help in sports, it’s a spirit of life. Sports teach you to handle winning and losing with stability. It makes the kids strong mentally and emotionally to face whatever life has to offer.
- Academic success:
Yes, you may wonder how but playing sports improves and enhances brain functioning. Improving memory and concentration helps in academics. Let them sharpen their focus while they stay active with sports.
- Imbibes discipline:
Are you tired of disciplining your kids? Handover the responsibility to the sports. Sports inculcate discipline naturally into kids. Getting up on time, good water intake, food discipline and maintaining a routine, sports teaches your kids the basics of discipline in a healthy way. You will be amazed how your kids turn into complete perfectionists.
- Make something big:
Who knows your kids may make something big out of the sport they love. After all the sports stars where once just tiny toddlers playing just out of fun. No one knows when your kids take it too serious and become world famous.
Your kids are naive, they need a direction so don’t be pushy but motivate them every now and then. Once they are glued,the sports will bring out the best in them.
