Health Tip: Keep the Sport in Kids' Sports

Health Tip: Keep the Sport in Kids' Sports


(HealthDay News) -- Sports should be fun for kids, but a competitive atmosphere can ruin the enjoyment.

The American Academy of Pediatrics suggests ways to help kids focus on the fun in sports:

  • Don't add to pressure on your child to perform. Help kids understand that doing their best is what's important.
  • Understand your child's physical limitations, and be realistic about your child's abilities and development.
  • Offer plenty of positive feedback and encouragement, and always emphasize fun over winning or performance.
  • Teach your child the importance of being a good sport.
