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.
