What can your child learn about themselves when they "fail" at something? Kids are going to try lots of things in life. They will not be successful at everything. Sports can teach kids a lot about how to handle not being good at something.
How to practice, persevere and be happy for others who are successful are just a few of the things kids learn when they participate in sports. These are lessons that will apply to life in general as well.
It is O.K. for kids to "fail" and sometimes can teach powerful lessons.
