Your article beautifully explains the need of playing games with friends for the development of their mind and body. I think you can also add health benefits if you want. This message should reach every parent whose child doesnt go out.

    1. Thanks Sourabh , you are right now days most of kids is more interested in video games or tech more than real sports and every parent should encourage their kids to play sports .

  2. Hi Thank you for building awareness on fitness and children.

    It is so important for children to socialise it will set them up for later years and sports is a good way to help with team building.

  3. I totally agree that kids should play sports. My son did gymnastics competitively for 14 years, and it taught him a lot about self discipline. He also gained lifelong friends that he will always be close to. Being a single mom, it was also good to have his coaches be a role model for him. Sports keeps kids out of trouble, in shape, and happy.

  4. I always supported my oldest daughter into sports and she loves it! For me it is a great training to build self-esteem and character too! She is into volleyball, track and field, and basketball. She wants to try cross-country next year and I will just keep on supporting her and so as her siblings when they are ready! Great article as usual! Will go back for sure!

  5. Nice post!

    My son is 2 and half and I plan on having him try out many sports and see what he may like to get into. Like any father, I want my son to be the best sports player for the next generation! I hope for little man to make his old man proud!

  6. Hey, I really liked this post about why children should play sports. These days, kids don’t get out as much as they used to. Hopefully this post convinces parents why kids should play sports.

  7. Hello,
    Thank you for sharing this article. My son is 3.5 and has A LOT of energy. He also needs to make new friends and learn how to be a good team player. I really need to introduce him to sports. Just don’t know where to start. At what age would you say kids should be playing sports?

    Thanks gain. It was a great reminder.


    1. Hi Sierra , I think you can start join him in sport schools as soon he turns 4 , It’s always good idea to make him try few sports before decide which one he will love more and stay with. That’s great he as a lot of energy and for sure sport will make him make new friends

  8. Sports are great for kids to get into and there are so many options. There’s the normal basketball, baseball, football, or soccer. But then there are others like skiing/snowboarding, martial arts, dance, gymnastics, and much more! There is a sport available for every interest.

    1. For sure that’s why i believe it’s good idea in young age to make your kids join more than one sport until they find the passion for that sport they like more.
