Brief reasons why do students leave sports


Winning is everything!! really? maybe yes, in terms of boosting confidence and self-esteem.
one of the key points of increasing self-esteem is winning in your favorite game,
if I talk about myself as a kid I always want to win. winning at this age is very
important for children they always try their best they don’t want to become a part of losers.

parents should tell their children either they lose or win they don’t
need to worry even if they lose in any game parents should encourage them and
should not discourage them, for improving their ability in their most-liked game,
parents should play with them in the weekend.


maybe your kid doesn’t have too much time for physical activities. I know this situation is very hard for a kid, at this age our main attention seekers are our friends, video games, and movies.
that’s why I always recommend a timetable for a daily routine if you give 3 hours to physical activities,
its worth it.

Don’t criticise

one of the main reason kid left healthy games is because of criticism, if a kid performs badly then he/she may
face criticism and maybe their other fellows make fun of him/her because of this situation
a kid says goodbye to games I have seen a lot of students leave physical activities only reason is criticism.

you maybe send your kids to training schools but are you taking notice is he happy or not? what if
his trainer criticises and degrades him instead of encouraging him that is why you should go to these school
and see how his trainer treats him. does he criticise? does he degrade them? ask his trainer
that doesn’t degrade or criticise your child.


Another main reason of learners leave physical activities is because of competition. competition
also means anxiety and fear of losing in the student’s world, some learners even don’t take part in
any event because of strong competitors they think that they will lose the match, that’s why they don’t perform
its all because of lack of confidence so always be there to support your child as I said before losing-winning is nothing.

Are they enjoying

it is not the rocket science if kids are not enjoying any game they will not stick with this game.
no matter how the big event is if they won’t enjoy they will leave!!! that is why students should select sports according to their interest.

Character building

physical activities help students in character building as I said before you might notice
a student who is better at sports, he/she is also good in studies, sports help us to
improve yourself, games give us a chance to overcome our fear,
it improves our capability and efficiency, it helps us in removing tiredness, it improves
our blood circulation I want to add one thing here doctors always recommend physical
