prons and cons of youth sports
It is proved that people who exercise have healthier body and they handle their routine work better, but the point is how much time should be spent on this part of our life.
Children with regular exercise are happier and healthier than children who do not do this. When I was in my childhood, I exprienced doing my homeworks better than the time I just continously studied. In this way I can concentrate on my home work and all the time I was fresh and happy. I also learnt social behavior with other children. I found a lot of friends and this friendship network even now helps me.
In other hand, spending a great amount of time on practicing sport could be disturbing. Although physical practicing could enhance our children health, but at the same time we should pay attention to improve other parts of our children aspects. Practicing much takes our children time. In this way they can not devote time on their homework, and other family activities like going to movies, musuem, parks. Also when a child focus on sport he desires to study sport magazines and newspapers leading to wasting time.
I conclude that, spending a great deal of time on sports could be disturbing and causes their life to be low performance. Although regular exercise could enhance their taste of life.
