So....your child wants to play a sport. You allow them to play but they have zero talent in this sport and actually look pretty silly out on the court. Of course you don't want to say this to him! But you know his peers will (and so far he doesn't seem to care what they say and is having fun). Would you pull them out of the sport and try to redirect them to something that you know would better suit them (to protect them from the embarrassment of their peers)? Or would you let them just live and learn? I know they can't be protected from everything, but I know what it's like to be picked on and I don't want him to feel like I did. Being a parent is tough sometimes!!!
Sports is not about how good you are. It is about how much you love the game. When I started at karate I wanted to quit. I went to my instructor and told her I was so confused. She looked me in the eye and smiled and told me that I was a white belt and that I am supposed to be confused. She was so right. I love taking karate. My confidance and skill has grown so much. Confidence comes from doing difficult things and not from doing things that come easy. I would never pull my child from anything. I have allowed my child to stop doing something because they no longer enjoyed it but that is different. I will always encourage the things they love.
