So Your Kid Doesn't Like Sports ... Relax! It's OK! Here's Why! by Renee Herren
I have to admit, there might have been a brief time of mourning when my husband and I realized that our son had no interest in team sports. If your child is like mine – it's OK! When given authentic life experiences, children will grow to be well-rounded individuals. Focus on finding what excites them! Instead of a team sport, your child might want to focus their energy on an individual sport like swimming. Help them discover their strengths, interests and passions by encouraging them to:
- take music lessons
- take art lessons
- join a technology club
Joining organizations such as Cub Scouts, Girl Scouts and youth groups are also great ways for children to build a sense of self, meaningful friendships and important life skills!
