New study from Germany suggests that
* Participating in a sport club exposes children to cooperation with other children in a team, which may also make them better team players in other situations in life.
* Playing sports in a club comes often along with participation in competitions. Victory in competition may raise children’s self-esteem while defeat, despite eventual negative effects on children’s self-esteem, may teach them how to deal with such a situation.”
So, parents, to help build greater resilience in your child, give them some opportunities to explore competitive sports!
