Playing sports is as important as a good education because it helps them create a series of positive habits that will drastically increase the chances of success in whatever goals they set in their lives. Here are some relevant guidelines that your child can learn by doing.
When they practice sports, children first become aware of the importance of discipline. They must have it to attend regularly to the practices or practices, to dedicate themselves with constancy and to perform the necessary trainings and to give the best of themselves whenever they play. Likewise, they learn to have a goal and a strategy to get to it. To take a goal, to make a basket, to run under certain time, to jump certain height, all this represents a success in the life of the child.
Another learning that children receive is teamwork. Sport develops friendship and group work with others. Both in games and in life, it is difficult to deal with homework alone. Sports teaches them how to be good team players, to give them the courage to help others and to require help when they need it.
Also, when they play sports, children learn to follow the guidelines. Games have their rules and school, work and personal relationships as well.
Finally, sport teaches them to be persistent and resilient. They will understand that not winning does not mean failure and they will always have another chance to improve, learn from mistakes, play again, inspire others to improve and win.
