What is the importance of encouraging your child to play sports at a young age?
I'm not a parent, but I think that sports can be a good thing, and especially team sports.
Team sports as a medium teaches cooperation among peers. It's always good to realize that it's not just us that matter, but "all of us."
Exorcise is always a plus!
I don't think that sports are necessary at all though - clearly some children are not going to be interested in sports, and neither should they be.
It takes a whole village, or so they say...
Encouraging sports is important to children for many good reasons. First, you encourage them to be physically fit. Being active and constantly moving around will be equivalent to their daily exercise. Second, sports teaches them team work. They have to work as a team to win. Third, sportsmanship - they learn to accept loss graciously.
