With there being less and less physical education in schools these days, I think it is important to let your kids be in a sport. Childhood obesity is a very real threat to our children. Additionally, having your child play sports is a good way to teach them so many things- teamwork, responsibility, self-discipline, and positive attitude, just to name a few.
My husband grew up very, very poor. His grandparents, however, always made sure he was able to play sports. He has told me on several occasions that if he hadn’t had football and wrestling, he might have turned out very differently. It opened up opportunities for him that he might never have had if he hadn’t been able to play these sports.
So, tell me, La Vergne, what sports did you play as a kid? What sports do your kids play? What’s your favorite sport to watch? Me, I’m an awesome armchair quarterback. No matter what John Madden may say about my abilities, haha.
