There’s a buzz about competitive sports.
It’s a big, buzzy, popular, and increasingly-common subject in Canada, and the message is resonating with kids who have been left behind in this space.
And they’re finding the same advice they’ve been receiving for a long time.
“It’s like being left behind,” said a 10-year-old boy.
“I used to love the game.
But I wasn’t competitive.
I was just trying to be the best.
I’m not really competitive anymore.” “
And that’s the problem.
I’m not really competitive anymore.”
In the U.S., the sport has expanded beyond the backyard, but in Canada there’s been little change.
It has been replaced by the NFL, the NFL Playoffs, the Olympics and even, in some parts of the country, the World Series.
The message is that there are lots of other things you can do with your time in the house, and you can get the same kind of focus from your kids.
“The focus has been on sports, but there are so many other things to do,” said Brenda Bechara, who runs a coaching service for young people in her neighbourhood in Newmarket, Ont.
“So I’ve been working with parents for a few years now to make sure they have a good, positive, competitive mindset and they’re ready for the world to see them.”
It’s not just kids who are having trouble competing.
Older kids, in particular, are struggling.
There is a growing body of research showing that older kids struggle to keep up with the demands of the sport and are less likely to be competitive.
“When they get to a certain age, they’re just not as good at keeping up with their peers,” said Becharas mother, Trish.
“They’re not as active.
They’ve got a different level of attention span, they have more trouble staying focused.” “
Their cognitive skills are not as advanced.
They’ve got a different level of attention span, they have more trouble staying focused.”
The research also indicates that these challenges are not simply related to how kids think or act.
The brain is constantly re-developing, with areas like the frontal lobes becoming more active as we age, and those areas are linked to a lot of skills in sports and life.
But the biggest impact of these brain changes is felt at an early age.
In the old days, kids would play with balls and make toys.
Now, they are spending more time and more energy with a ball.
And their brains are more flexible, making it easier for them to think and respond to stimuli in new ways.
In fact, this is one of the reasons kids are so good at sports: they have so many different ways to learn and adapt.
In a recent study, Bechars mother found that one-third of her younger kids were doing well in the sport at age 11.
She says these kids have a greater capacity to adapt to challenges in life, which allows them to stay active.
“If you ask any child to describe what a good sport is, they will tell you it’s a game where you play with a toy,” she said.
Becharyas family is one that has taken this challenge very seriously. “
That’s a very important lesson for parents, and for all the kids in the world.”
Becharyas family is one that has taken this challenge very seriously.
She started training her children when they were just a few months old.
She wanted to give them the same opportunity she gave her own kids to get into the sport, so she started by using sports as a way to teach them to play.
“There was a lot we didn’t know,” she recalls.
“How do you do a sports task?
How do you tell a kid to do a task?
Where does the toy come from?
How are the balls handled?
How does the ball move?
Learning to change. “
The challenge is learning to adapt.
Learning to change.
Learning how to think differently.
We have to do all of that in one sitting.”
The idea is to create a sport for kids that is not just about the ball.
It also involves building skills that are learned over time, something Becharia says is essential.
“As you get older, you learn to be a different person,” she says.
“You’re not going to be able to do the same things as someone who is in their late 20s.
You can’t teach them how to be good athletes and not be good people, but you can help them develop a good self-esteem and to have a confidence in themselves. “
One of the most important things you learn as a parent is to help your child develop as a person.
You can’t teach them how to be good athletes and not be good people, but you can help them develop a good self-esteem and to have a confidence in themselves.
