A Question for your Kids

If you were told you couldn’t play your sport for one month, how would you feel?

Conversations with kids one month


  • Gratitude

  • Pros and Cons are considered

Directions for Parents:

Many people get injured for periods and can’t play their sport through no fault of their own. If you only play one sport, the pressures of having to perform and improve can be exhausting for some children too. As a result, it is very easy to forget the reasons why you play and the benefits of playing sport. Encourage your child to talk about their experiences.

Ideas for Kids:

  1. If I couldn’t play my sport for one month I’d feel?
  2. If I couldn’t play my sport for one month I’d do ……… instead and it would mean that I ……
  3. Why do I enjoy playing my sport?
