Engaging in sport as a child can instill lifelong lessons
about teamwork, perseverance, and physical fitness.
But children around the world are dropping out of sports at an alarming rate, with as many as 70% of kids leaving organized sports by age 13.
One of the major factors contributing to children dropping out of sports is pressure put on by parents. Studies show children often feel pressured to succeed to avoid disappointing their parents, while parents pressure children to participate to gain personal status or live out their own personal fantasies.
It’s no wonder that fights between parents and verbal abuse towards officials can turn kids off from participating in activities that can benefit their personal development.
To keep your child engaged in the sport, expressing support for their efforts after a game is essential. Win or loss, asking your child the right questions after a game can help nurture the bond between parent and child without adding unnecessary strain or pressure.
Here are three of the best questions parents can ask their children after a game:

I have a dilemma!
As a father of three young children (two boys and a girl), I have the dilemma over the upcoming Christmas school break…
How do I keep my kids occupied without giving into their constant demand for electronics (especially Youtube and video games).
Now don’t get me wrong, I love, love, love playing with my kids. Whether it’s building lego spaceships with the boys, having make-up smeared all over my face from my daughter, or being outside playing sports or at the park.
I’m blessed to be able to work remotely most of the time from my home, so I can kind of keep an eye on how much screen time they’re having. And we live in Southern California, where the weather over the holidays is usually a nice 60-70 degrees. The perfect temperature to get the kids outside to get plenty of exercise and play.
But this generation of children is very different from my generation. Technology is, and will be, a huge part of their growing up and their future. Kids will be kids and in the current climate, their love of technology gravitates them back to sitting with the iPad/TV, watching Youtube and playing video games.
I had to come up with some ideas that would help alleviate my anxiety of how many hours they are spending in front of a screen. I decided to search out purposeful ‘Apps’ that would be beneficial for their personal development.
6 amazing Apps you'll be excited for your kids to use over the Holidays.

Playing sport — especially soccer — can have a huge
impact on a child’s life.
Learning how to navigate team dynamics, put forth one’s best effort, and cope with success and failure often plays a major role in turning young players into successful adults.
Here are six essential life lessons children learn from soccer:
Taking charge, making decisions, and strategizing happens in every corporate boardroom — and on every soccer field. Learning how to achieve one’s objectives through competition and cooperation are key tenets of leadership that also happen to make up the fundamental state of play in football. For girls specifically, sport like soccer can play a major role in charting their future course, with one survey of high-level executives finding that 90% of women in leadership positions engaged in sport as children.
Win or lose, playing sport has been found to boost overall life satisfaction. Engaging with teammates and opponents raises levels of social interaction and feelings of identity, which are not always present when pursuing individual goals.
For a child, losing a match in the last minute of play can seem like a devastating moment. But learning how to manage loss and set expectations is essential to developing perseverance. Understanding how to handle both wins and losses is a crucial skill for the leaders of tomorrow.
The fundamental aspect of sport is teamwork, requiring players to come together to achieve a particular goal. Developing teamwork skills is essential to helping children learn how to cooperate and interact with others. Whether it’s in practice, in the...
