Team sports provide opportunities for kids to develop friendships, work as a team, problem solve, learn good sportsmanship, and much more. But team sports aren't for everyone. Many kids, particularly those who are introverted or shy, lack interest in or struggle with team sports. When kids aren't into team sports, parents often get caught up in an endless battle — with their kids kicking and screaming all the way to every practice and game. So the question is, should parents push their unenthused kids into team sports if their kids are adamant they want no part of it? Encouraging kids to participate in some form of extracurricular activity is undoubtedly a good idea.
