David-Balancing after-school sports for child

Keeping balanced activities for young kids is good for their health, education and quality of life. In real life more and more parents are under a lot of  pressure to make their children perfect. They don’t care about their interests and capablities. Furthermore, it makes them not have happy childhood memories.

I have two kids, boy is 9-year old and daughter is 6-year old. My son plays piano very well and he is willing to do this. He takes one hour lessons a week and practices 2 hours a day. He enjoys practicing and has time  to play with friends and family. My daughter dislikes piano. She chooses gymnastics and that she loves so much. She takes part in lessons 6 hours a week. She goes to dancing school 1 hour a week. She has a lot time to play with friends and to have fun with her family. I believe that  I have given them balanced after-school sports.

I don’t want to mention what benefits come from these sports. But I would like to share my experience with you. I can’t imagine that young children become involved in unbalanced program, where all the emphasis is put upon winning and success. In such a program, nothing is done to help them learn about his or her emotional self. It is bad for them.
