6. What if Your Child Wants to Quit?

Find out why he wants to quit. If your child's team depends on his participation, consider encouraging him to persevere for a season. If that's not the case, then think about how quitting would affect what you want him to get out of his sports experience. If your kid is unhappy or overscheduled, then letting him quit might be the best thing. Whether or not your child quits, make sure he's still getting at least 60 minutes of exercise each day.
