Hello families, all right!
Sport gives our children many values that they can use in their daily lives, personal values and others that will help them socialize with the rest of the children. Values that you can use with your friends, with your parents, with your schoolmates.
Remember that learned values can be adapted to our child’s life and learning. And there are many tools that help us educate children in values. One of them is sport. I bring a list of 5 essential values that sport conveys to children.
Values are learned, and some children are easier to learn because of their personality, but all can internalize and learn values. The main responsible for transmitting values to children are the parents, but also the school can be taught. There are many useful tools that facilitate this learning such asjokes , stories and sports! Sport is a huge transmitter of essential values. Check out the main values that you convey to your child:
From the moment a child decides to play a sport, he acquires a commitment to himself and to others. He learns to respect a series of rules and limits, to respect his opponent, not to be late for training, to follow the instructions of the coach or teacher. It is undoubtedly an important step for the child. Commitment makes the child feel more mature, autonomous and responsible.
All sports involve effort. The child finally understands that success does not come by chance, but behind every triumph there is a lot of effort and dedication, a lot of training and learning.
Read it too:
With great effort and enthusiasm, success is achieved. Sometimes they come before or after, but with perseverance a great distance is made for success. The child will learn that with sports he often gets lost, but if he gets up and keeps trying, he will finally get a triumph or at least feel the pride of having done things right.
Not only does the sport teach you to lose and overcome the frustration of defeat, it also teaches you something even more important: winning. Children will understand that to celebrate a victory is to put yourself in the place of the loser and comfort him after his defeat. They will learn that the one who knows best is not better, but the one who, knowing so much, is humble enough not to proclaim it to the four winds. Thanks to sport, your son will learn that no one is better than anyone else, because a triumph is the fruit of a moment and that perhaps the one who has just won will defeat him tomorrow.
Respect yourself and your opponent. Respect your coach and, of course, your teammates. Sport teaches children respect and tolerance. Especially in team sports, they learn to assess failures globally and not to criticize the poor performance of a teammate. A valuable learning that they can then apply in their daily life at school.
Here at home I have a sportsman who loves football. Luiz Miguel entered futsal when he was 4 years old, I remember as if it was today, he stopped on the court traveling, nor paying attention to the ball (it still happens, RSRS), or even not being able to hit a shot. But his willpower, perseverance and love for football made him dedicate himself to every day.
Today he plays football on the field, has a better structure, understands more, and continues to devote himself, even too much. If he leaves it is football all day long. But there is a control not to extrapolate.
With the training is super dedicated, the anxiety is so much that he wakes up even earlier. His workouts take place on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 8 am. He says that his dream is to be a player, but e teachingread exactly these values, and without study it is no use. I encourage it, always, but firmly with the reality that we have.
I hope you enjoyed it. If you have any questions or suggestions, leave your comment. Or if you want to share your experience with me!
Hugs, Mayara Figueredo!
