The child and the sport. How to motivate the child and whether to do it, culinary portal “Eat at home! “
To seek advice, perhaps many of You have been such cases (can’t call it a problem), I want to hear life stories on a similar theme, I want to hear the opinions of parents, and opinion “yesterday” children who attended sports clubs, music and art schools.
My son is 8 years old, at the age of 3 years, we have “tried” to engage in several sports, in the end, they opted not swimming, and have
been doing for 4 years. At first was engaged in “the frog”, then we moved to a teenage pool (2 times a week), and a year ago were selected in “School of the Olympic reserve swimming” where kids are present in the adult pool, 5 days a week. Six months later, the desire to have our son began to disappear. In training, often lazy, although the competition is though not the prize, but close to them. According to the coach, if there was a motivation and desire – the result would be great, because all the data just for this sport.
Ideal for me would be the following situation: the son goes to the pool, develop physically, strengthens body, strength of will and character. When the load in the school will be large, smoothly completing exercises in the pool, and quietly studying further. But it only my dreams. In school the child goes with pleasure, lesons, makes, participates in competitions and contests – although motivation and persuasion on our part not at all. But the pool.
That raises the question that can’t find the answer, whether to motivate the child to school, or not?
I always thought that it should, but the power is running out, so you begin to doubt in their thoughts.
P. S. the other day taking him to practice, drew his attention to the older boys (14-16 years), what are they tall, slender, strong, pretty, said, probably, girls stare at them, to which the son replied that no plans to start a family, so he need not be so. Here’s what you can say in reply? To argue with a child is hard, adults arguments him seem ridiculous, he’s a really great deal still does not understand, and therefore the explanation must be “childish important”. Can someone tell me, I haven new they can come up with.
