Ages 7-10: Being a Good Sport
Games and sports can continue to help your children play by the rules and interact well with their siblings and peers. Work on these skills:
- If your child is playing with younger kids, make sure he plays fair and lets the little ones have their turn and chance to shine.
- Explain good sportsmanship, teamwork, and how to accept help and coaching.
- Find an afterschool sport or activity that brings out the best in your child.
