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!

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

Three Hours City Tour At Ensenada, Mexico

A THREE HOURS CITY TOUR when we embarked in Mexico on the second morning.   My sister booked the three hours city tour in Ensenada, Mexico, a van came to pick us up from the port.  Ensenada is the border of Mexico and it reminds me of Hatyai, a border town too between Malaysia and Thailand.  We were taken to a shopping area where we must haggle for the goods.  LOL.. Yes, something common in my own country... Anyway, we did not buy anything for ourselves... just a wooden handmade truck for my grandson which cost $8usd.   Nothing much to shout about on this three hours excursion, I was so sleepy on the way back to the ship that I dozed off and only awaken when we were driven through the town.  All in all, I just wanted to step onto Mexican soil and I would give this a miss if I were to go on this Mexico cruise again.  LOL... At the open area shopping walking towards the Blowhole... This is La Bufadora Blowhole, an amazing natural marine geyser that is capable of shooting water over 60 fe
