My daughter has been involved in sports for 2 years. A very small husband brought her to the tennis courts for the first time. And now, looking at my child, I understand that training for her is as natural a process as waking up in the morning, going to kindergarten, playing.
At the beginning
To give Sonya to tennis was a cherished wish of her husband. Somehow she was a successful figure and not deprived of her strength. From the first trainings, he put her daughter before the fact that now tennis is the main thing in her life, at least for a few years before she starts school.
I don’t know if the child is so imbued with the words of her father, or if she really likes training, but I don’t remember that once I’ve said the words: I won’t walk.
It makes me happy
I am pleased that the sport does not cause contradictions in it. I got used to it, that at least on this occasion I do not hear whims, denials, hysterics, I don’t see puffy lips.
I like to watch how she gains skill, grows stronger, and tempers her character. On the court, the child as if grows up, forgets about games, can concentrate.
What qualities does sport develop?
In fact, my Sonya is a little absentminded, sometimes even infantile. And it’s just great that sport makes it move and think faster. I notice that she can now mobilize and focus even in other situations. And I really hope that these new qualities will help her in school.
The second thing I noticed: the child has no fear of the new company. In two years, we have changed 3 coaches and three groups. Naturally, I was worried about how my girl would adapt. I thought she was shy, afraid of new adults and children. I did not know how to talk to her about it. While the daughter herself has not uttered: And what is there to be afraid of, beat yourself over the ball and that’s it. What does it matter which children?
Imagine, this little man already has priorities that shape the concepts and style of behavior.
About her just can not be silent. Daughter is engaged 4 times a week. As a sturdy tin soldier, she comes and trains on the inside. Sometimes, it seems, now I will hear: Mom, that’s enough, I won’t go again! But she just quietly departs in the car, asks to eat and waits until the forces return.
The coach said, this is brought up sporty character. At the subconscious level, the goal is set, and the body, overcoming fatigue, moves towards it. He says it is much worse if the kid is free on the court and leaves the hall full of energy.
I really hope that this quality will remain in it and will be useful in life for achieving other results and goals.
sports and health
Tennis is quite expensive. At first I was worried that Sonya would miss a lot because of her illness, and the money would be thrown to the wind. My daughter always suffered from colds and tracheitis. But now there is clear progress: she is sick much less, and I believe that there is in this the merit of the sport.
A look into the future
Many mothers do not give their children to the sport, because they do not want to see them as athletes. They categorically declare: Sport in life is not useful to them! How can you know what is useful for them and what is not? And does the fact that a child goes in for sports as a child already obliges him to be an athlete? Why look at the question so one-sided?
My many girlfriends are still trying to convince me that life without sports is beautiful and interesting. But I just wonder listening to these speeches.
After all, modern children are so inactive! They do not run on the street, play outdoor games a little, they practically have no place to ride bicycles and roller skates, they do not have to buy a subscription to the pool. We muffle them at the slightest breeze of wind. And they move in transport. How can a modern child do without sport ?? I do not understand. For me, this is equivalent to no movement.
I say sport Yes. Moreover, sport is something worth investing in your mother time. Mental development is great, but I can’t watch my child all the time in a sitting position.
And how do you feel about the sport at an early age?
