Discipline is something that children learn through their parents. In order for it to develop correctly and to reinforce this learning in children, many adults trust that the little ones practice sports.
Sport as a discipline in children is very effective. These are the benefits of promoting discipline in children through sports.
Parents encourage their children to play sports trusting that to learn values correctly they must be practiced outside the home. And, the sport is very beneficial beyond the physical part, since practicing it raises the mental performance of children.
Sport instills multiple values with which discipline is encouraged in children. Thanks to this discipline, children learn to be more organized, show more interest in learning, maintain greater attention in the classroom and, on many occasions, obtain better school performance.
These values to which we refer are the following:
- Commitment. The child will understand that the commitment is with himself and with the team. He learns that his actions will have consequences for both him and his peers. Thus, you will take responsibility for your actions and mistakes from a learning perspective.
- Team work. The child learns to relate to others and learns that it is necessary to cooperate with others to achieve goals and objectives.
- Be persistent. You don't always win in sports. Children learn that there are obstacles, unforeseen events and situations that put them to the test that if they cause them to “fall” they will get up and that it is necessary to persist to reach the goals. Without perseverance there will be no discipline.
- Dedication. Sport teaches children to take the first step when they want something.
- Have attitude. Faced with any challenge, the disposition that one has is important since it exerts a direct influence on the activity that is going to be carried out. A positive attitude helps to have an adequate vision in any situation.
To encourage discipline in children through sports and in a healthy way, adults must be clear that the purpose of sport in children should always be to have fun, play, experiment and learn in a healthy way with other children. Thus, they will learn to value their own effort and will increase their self-esteem. And where the competition will be a means of learning and not an end.
Parents are to be the example of their children. The little ones should see their parents enjoying the practice of sport. It is the way in which adults can transmit to children, as if they were a mirror in which to reflect, all the values necessary to instill discipline.
What's more, it is important that adults encourage them to play the sport they like. Let the child try, offering them support and security to create a motivating environment for their practice. The child's motivation and having a good time doing the activity will be the basis from which the little one will begin to learn to be disciplined.
