How to motivate your child for sports
Physical education is necessary for children for physical development, strong immunity, and maintaining a healthy weight. Sport strengthens muscles, bones, makes a child enduring, strong, agile and purposeful. Many parents are trying to send their child to the sports section. At first, the child goes to classes with pleasure, but over time his interest in training decreases. According to psychologists, children's motivation is enough for a maximum of six months. What should parents do to make sports enjoyable?
Sports you like
The task of the parents is to help the child choose the sport he likes. You may be passionate about soccer or chess, but if your son is holding his breath watching films with martial arts, send him to the karate section. Or your daughter is an active and athletic girl, loves to jump and run, you don't need to impose ballroom dancing on her, try gymnastics or athletics. It's simple, but sometimes parents put their interests above the interests of the child. You need to be prepared for the fact that you have to change several sections in order to find a suitable sport.
Parents should consider the material aspect. Sport must meet the financial capabilities of the family so that in the event of a decrease in income or an increase in training costs, the child does not quit. Consider the payment for classes, the necessary sports equipment, competition fees, training and competition uniforms.
In the sports section, communication takes place between the coach and the ward, and between the wards. If a child respects his mentor, and the coach is familiar with the peculiarities of child psychology, this is half the battle (calorizer). The other half depends on relationships within the team. When a child manages to find friends, he goes to training more willingly. He is attracted not only by sports, but also by communication with peers. The coach's task is to create a safe and friendly atmosphere within the team.
In many sections, it is not necessary to buy a subscription for the whole month - you can come to a trial lesson. Take your child, and he will share with you his impressions of the workout.
Parental support is not only about taking them to training and praising them for success. Parents should support the child's interest - ask about how classes are going, be interested in this sport, drive to competitions, show films and TV shows. The main thing is to avoid excessive pressure. Interest should be mutual and natural.
Finding an outstanding athlete idol will boost your child's motivation. Follow the latest cinematography. Suddenly, a movie about an outstanding hockey player is shown in cinemas, and your son just goes to the hockey section. Seeing your dream on the big screen is something!
Taking part in competitions is a good way to motivate and discipline. Parents must prepare their child to participate in order to win. Explain that you need to do your best in competitions (calorizator). In case of defeat, support, explaining that all outstanding athletes had failures. Losing is not a reason to quit training, it gives you the opportunity to look back and hone your skills.
When a child has before his eyes confident, motivated for success, active and athletic parents, his motivation increases significantly. All children follow the example of their parents. Do you want to motivate your child for sports? Get off the couch, go for a run, to the gym, pool or sports field, establish healthy eating habits, and go out in the fresh air more. Remember that motivation builds mood and discipline builds habit. If you start doing something, do it regularly.
