When kids find interest in sports, there is no stopping them. If you are a mom who finds yourself in a conundrum on how to render your support to sports-enthusiasts kids, then here are some tips to give you a head start to be that all supportive or soccer mom!
Tip #1: Believe
It all starts with believing. When your kiddos feel and see that you believe in them, they eventually feel motivated with surging energy.
Tip #2: Get to know the sports
Knowing the sports your kid loves will do you no harm. Be enthusiastic and everything else will follow. In the long run, you will get your share of fun too. I am slowly getting into the rule of the game though at times I get confused why its a foul. I am getting there, believe me. 🙂
Tip #3: Incorporate in your budget
Regardless the sports your child is in, it will require them to buy some footwear or equipment. To give him a firm footing, you can allot this aspect into your monthly budget. Football is an expensive sport, football shoes are more expensive than other sports. Then you need to buy shin guards, football socks, ball and the usual jersey uniform.
Tip #4: Nourishment
Sports are quite demanding with energy. So it is of utmost importance to pack healthy snacks for your kids. Provide him the nourishment he needs to win the day! I normally prepare apples and oranges so they can take while waiting for the next game. There are instances that there are not lunch breaks so in between meals in small quantity is advised.
Tip #5: Always be ready
Kids get the fun even during practice games. All the more when they are brought to different places to amuse the crowd! Whether it is a practice game or a competition, be ready to jump in to transport and prepare him for the event.
When you go all-out in supporting your kids endeavour, then you are already that soccer mom. Keep it up!
