Young Children and Sports--Weighing the Risks and Benefits.
Elkind, David
Child Care Information Exchange, n135 p14-16 Sep-Oct 2000
Examines the contemporary rationales of parents placing their preschool children in organized sports, including: (1) earlier is better; (2) parent peer pressure; (3) contemporary dangers; and (4) learning of self confidence, self esteem, cooperation and competition. Finds little value and much risk in engaging children at an early age in organized team sports. (SD)
