A value piece to the educational puzzle, sports are an excellent activity for growing children. Aside from the beneficial health aspects, sports boost children's self-esteem, familiarize them with the feeling of both winning and losing, build confidence, and teaches them how to work as a team. The added benefit? Sports are fun! Remember that no matter what sport your children choose to participate in, it should not cause them stress.
