Having a child that is obsessed with sport is nothing new. Since the dawn of time boys and girls have relished kicking a ball around in their back garden, playing tennis down at the local park and racing one another annually on sports days. Seeing our kids active is to be welcomed, and if you have a child that is more into the outdoors than the console in their bedroom, you should count yourself lucky. It’s vital that you are able to harness this enthusiasm for sport so that it doesn’t wither away.
Three days before the US’s biggest national holiday, the US soccer team faced Belgium in a Round 16 no holds barred fight to the finish. Some may be disappointed but I say despite the heartbreaking 2-1 loss to Belgium in extra time, we should be proud for our country and we should be proud of the US soccer team players. They played their hearts out and there is nothing more we can ask.
