Persevering in practice

Physical activity

Attend a practice session or rehearsal by professionals in the field of sports, dance or music.

Discussion point: Learning valuable skills requires perseverance.

Pick a sport or another activity that your children enjoy watching or doing. Perhaps theatre or music will have more appeal to your family. Research opportunities and attend a practice session (or rehearsal) in your community. Talk about the athletes/actors/musicians and ask your children how they think the athletes or performers became so skilled. Later, set aside some time to help your children practice a physical activity they enjoy.
