Not all kids will find playing sports interesting especially in this age of time where smart phones are so rampant and video games are being played by majority of children at home. But we sure don’t want to raise a generation of kids who are dependent on technology. Let us motivate our kids to get into sports and allow them to reach their full potential with the help of sports.
Truth is, there are no magic pills available in the market to keep our kids motivated. But one recognizable reason why some kids lack the motivation is probably related to the fact that your child is either discouraged or is not enjoying the sport. Once you are able to recognize that it is lack of trying that keep them from pushing themselves.
Pushing is not always that bad especially if it could be beneficial for the child in the end. The difference between positive pushing and the negative pushing that parents tend to resort to in frustration is huge. Negative pushing uses tactics like comparison, bribery, shaming and nagging. Positive pushing, or constructive pushing, looks much different.
