042. Lessons from the Field: Parenting Young Athletes (Part 1)

As the hustle and bustle of sports seasons pick up pace, we're excited to tap into lessons we've learned from years of raising young athletes! In this first of two parts, we delve into the reasons behind encouraging our children to play sports —from promoting healthy lifestyles to the essential life skills learned on the field.

Snippet from the Show:

"Sports are a school of loyalty, courage, endurance, resoluteness, universal brotherhood—all natural virtues, but which provide the supernatural virtues with a solid foundation, and prepare us to bear the burden of the most serious responsibilities without weakness." – Pope Pius XII

They are called to make sports an opportunity for meeting and dialogue, over and above every barrier of language, race or culture. Sports, in fact, can make an effective contribution to peaceful understanding between peoples and to establishing the new civilization of love.” – St. Pope John Paul II "Jubilee of Sports People" October 29, 2000
