HEALTH TIPS KIDS

Health Tips.

I always tell my son, Noah, “Your primary responsibilities are school and sports. We will try different activities until you find the one you like, we will pick that one, stick with it, and commit to it.” After trying swimming, soccer, and tennis, he made his decision. Every day after school since then he has been playing tennis. Based on my experience as a tennis coach and a former professional athlete growing up with kids that were involved in sports, I can tell you that they typically become healthier, smarter and more confident. If you don't believe me, here are the top reasons that research and experts show investing in sports for your child is a smart choice.
