First Lady Michelle Obama shares a ton of salient and useful advice in the latest issue of Parenting Magazine.
She stressed the importance of ensuring having her kids play sports for a variety of reasons, only one of which is to remain physically fit.
├óΓé¼┼ôWe set the expectation that sports are as important as homework and friends. It├óΓé¼Γäós important to learn how to compete, to develop a skill.├óΓé¼┬¥
That’s a great point! Physical health is a great thing to work on at an early age, but we sometimes overlook the emotional and social benefits of a sporty lifestyle!
Our Mom-in-Chief continued:
├óΓé¼┼ôI want them to learn how to sweat, how to win gracefully and lose with dignity. I want them to learn what it feels like to get better at something that you didn├óΓé¼Γäót think you were good at.├óΓé¼┬¥
Wow! That’s exceptionally insightful!!
We have no doubt Natasha and Malia will grow up to be classy young ladies!!
