I’m back to share with you the importance of staying active.
A study was conducted way back in 1996, which looked at the relationship between self-esteem and perception of competence.
Basketball players, their parents, their coaches and their team-mates evaluated the perception of competence in a basketball game.
What was found was that those students who perceived themselves to be competent at the game, were more likely to have higher self-esteem.
So team sports are a good way to help build your child’s self-esteem.
It is also important to teach your child to believe in themselves and to help them build their competency in whatever sport they are interested in. If they believe in themselves, then they will have healthy self-esteem.
