Image result for Physically ActivePhysical activity is something that should be inevitable part of every person’s life, whether it is a child or a grown up person. Being physically active can bring only positive effects on health and life style, in general. But do we always put those facts in practice in our lives even when we know that they are good in theory,
That is actually the problem. People do not necessarily do what is good for them. By not doing it, they do not set very good example to their children. And that is the circle that is not easy to stop.
The good thing is that parents love their children, are dedicated to them and as such, they are aware what is the best for them. Physical activity and sports are usually the part of children’s life, even if it is not part of parent’s lives. The fact that parents are not involved in sports themselves, shows up to be the problem later in sport life of children, where they usually give up eventually. In case where whole family is involved in sports activity, it is more likely that children stay athlete whole life.
No matter if sports stays in children’s lives forever or not, it is very important that children are physically active while they are growing and while their bodies are developing. Physical activity provides proper development of every part of child’s body and being involved in sports, in particular, can bring many more benefits to the children.
Children can gain from playing sports in psychological and social manner, too. They gain more self-confidence, they become mentally stronger because they get used to winning and losing, to working hard and discipline. All these factors affect children’s lives in nothing but positive and useful way. It is easier to learn those life lessons while still young than later in life.
