CHILDREN AND SPORTS
No. 61 (Updated FEB-27-2011)

The issue of obesity is a challenging one and children are bearing the brunt of this far reaching problem. It goes without saying that sport has an invaluable role to play in the healthy lifestyles of children. While technology has been an exciting advancement in human life, it has also contributed to the breakdown of physical activity among children. Children are content with the thought of remaining indoors all day, glued to their television screens or playing the latest range of video games. Their parents are too caught up in their own money making ventures to notice. As a result of this, many children are carrying around a baggage of weight that is too much for their little frames to bear. They suffer from low self-esteem and their childhood years pass them by as they hide away from the world.

The situation seems bleak but fortunately, there is a solution. The solution lies in sport and with all the successful athletes making headlines; children have the inspiration to engage in various kinds of sport. Playing sport not only improves fitness levels of children, it also keeps them busy and provides them with the confidence boost they need. Children need to be active and their bodies were designed to take advantage of their youth and small bodies while playing and interacting with their peers.

Sport is a great way of improving social skills and learning how to be a team player. With so many options available, all children can find a sport that is suitable for them. Young children who engage in sport reduce their chances of acquiring chronic and life threatening diseases such as hypertension, heart disease and diabetes. Both boys and girls should be encouraged to play a sport that is right for them. Physical activity through sport is essential for both emotional and physical well-being of children.
