Half Pipe and Other Thoughts on Sports
Our boys didn't want to play team sports this fall. Part of me was relieved and part of me was disappointed. I believe in team sports, there is so much to learn. Though I do understand the need for autonomy, sports of interest that don't include a team.... Like fishing, scooter riding, mountain biking, nerf gun playing, skate boarding... These activities that my boys show their interest in. We are lucky enough to have access to this indoor half pipe, we may even be the envy of others too. What I want for my kids is to be active and to know through physical activity they can reduce stress, feel healthier, live longer, and have a good time. Parent goals.
