Is your child involved in sports? If so, it is likely that you already know how much emphasis can be placed on winning at all costs. According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, it's important for parents to focus on the value of kids' sports for fun and exercise, not only for winning. Unrelenting pressure to win can create excessive stress for young athletes, negatively impacting their health, wellness and even their performance.
