My Child Will Never Be An Athlete!

Itís true that some people have more natural talent for athletics than others. Even if your children arenít the most coordinated kids on the block, you can still help them find activities they enjoy and can become good at.  Walking, biking, jumping rope and following exercise DVDs are fun activities that donít require great physical prowess. Some children feel more comfortable with activities that involve a more contemplative approach like yoga, tai chi or tae kwondo.

And with practice, any one can improve their skills. Playing pitch and catch with you, hitting a tennis ball against a wall or getting a few lessons from a relative, neighbor or a local athlete can increase confidence.
