Giving Your Daughter Encouragement

Children need to be physically active, and although many boys thrive in competitive sports, girls sometimes need encouragement. Here are some tips from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on how to support your daughter's involvement in sports:

  • Buy your daughter her own equipment instead of giving her sporting goods her brother used.

  • Be a regular at her games.

  • Volunteer to help with the team, if you can.

  • Drive her to and from practices.

  • Give her time to be active.
