Well, Soccer season is officially over for my son. Wrestling starts in November and Im trying to decide if we should sign my 8 year old up. He says sure, yeah, he'll do it. But its exactly that that is worrying me.
He has such a take it or leave it attitude. He likes the social aspect, but he's not motivated much beyond that. And thats okay. But what I worry about is what should I do with that attitude? Do I try to direct it and help him be more focused and driven? And whats the alternative? Its physical activity during the cold indoor winter. I guess the one thing that is making me nervous about it, is its a 3 day a week commitment. Practice is two weekdays for 1.5 hrs each time, plus a Sunday meet.
I want him to have options and opportunities. I want him to build confidence. And I do believe sports really helps do all those things.
But yet, I need him to want it too.
