Why You Should Encourage your Kids to Play Sports

It’s true what they say, that nothing can quite compare to the smell of fresh air, first thing in the morning. 50 years ago, parents were always telling their kids to go outside and make new friends, but in this day and age, that just doesn’t happen anymore. Now kids have smartphones, all of the games that they could ever want and more. This can make it hard to get them to go outside and have some fun. Sport is one of the best ways for you to encourage your kids to get out there and have some physical activity, and it is also a great way for you to encourage them to meet new friends as well!

Self-Esteem

When kids are out there playing sport, this can really help them to boost their self-esteem. It is also great for their confidence. They are being given the chance to score certain points or even to perfect their skills along the way. When your child is able to accomplish this target, they will soon realise that they can achieve anything and this is a great way for you to help kids if they are shy or even if they have a problem socialising with others.

Happiness

Children are made to play. When physical activity and exercise is underway, the endorphins that are in the body trigger and release, which helps to give you a very positive feeling. Sport is a very good way for you to do this and it is almost guaranteed that if your child is playing sport as part of a team then they will certainly have the time of their lives when they are out and on the field. If you are not sure which sport is right for your child, then why not consider taking them to a soccer academy? This is one of the best ways for you to pair your child with other beginners who may not know the ins and outs of the sport.

Social Skills

When your child participates in a sport, you will find that their social skills develop and you will also find that they can quickly learn things such as leadership, how to build a team and even how to communicate as well. This is an essential skill for later in life and it can also help them to broaden the amount of life skills that they have as well. The best thing about a team sport is that not only is your child learning to play as a group, but they are also learning to play with others and how to listen to their teachers. They will experience another form of discipline and this is one of the best ways for you to teach them how to respect authority and even how to listen when they are being spoken to.

Sport is a great way for you to boost your child’s happiness and it is also a great way for you to really show them how they can branch out and become better at what they do!

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL... 

A Short Stay At Fatima Hospital

TWELVE DAYS SINCE my last post.... I was admitted to the hospital last week for heart palpitations and was under observation for two nights.... Thank God all is well now....  And it is still all about food... this time from the hospital... LOL...  For breakfast 2 slices of bread... oats and milo.... I opted for porridge during one lunch.... And for dinner....  Wanton noodles for breakfast before I was discharged.... This was attached to my body to monitor the palpitations....  And the doctor whom I have chosen without recommendations... I saw the hospital profiles on the doctors  And I chose him because of his cheerful profile picture.... Yes, indeed he is what he looks... And I feel better after that... LOL... 

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte
