The warm weather is here...
You can start by observing the following:
Children grow and mature at different rates. While there are obvious benefits to any physical activity or learning opportunity, most children are not ready for organized team sports until they are about six years old, when they are better able to follow directions and understand the concept of team work. Prior to this, children can stay active and healthy through unstructured ?free play.? Try out one activity at a time, and work with your child to find activities that he or she enjoys.
A child shouldn't be pushed into a sport or activity, and doing so can have a negative impact on self esteem. Add activities gradually when your child seems physically and emotionally ready to handle them.
Most important, allow your child time to be a kid.
