Teaching Your Kids to Play Sports with Class

11322240025_agafg.jpgMy grandson was before a live audience soccer recently and I was fortunate to be watching the game because he lives some distance away. He the stage well and has a excellent understanding of the game for his age. He knows enough in this area the game to be able to tell if he is before a live audience well or not. Unfortunately on this day he missed some goals and was not “on his game” as some refer to it. As he returned to the bench he was obviously upset with himself and all could tell it. When we got home I had the opportunity to say to him, “You need to play with class out here.” His dad questioned him, “Do you know what class is?” Of course life only six years ancient, he did not know and Dad had to give reasons for it to him. Just what is “class”? American Heritage lexicon defines “class act” as one of distinctive and stuck-up feature. Years ago our local high teach football team was doing well and we followed the team nearly the state for their “away” games. It did not take long to assess the kind of union we were in just by watching the hometown fans and listening to the public take up telecaster. If the union has respect for itself it will ensure that it puts its best foot forwards when a generous group of visitors come to town. Some towns were incredibly rude and impertinent. You would hope that those same people would not act that way if you were invited into their home. My respect grew for two communities when they would end the night with a 66-0 football score and both sides were very respectful of each other right through the night. How kids gather in this area having “class” and not having “class” in today’s society

Kids gather how to act from their parents, teachers, role models and the union. For instance, kids are not born snobbish and arrogant. They gather from people nearly them. Profanity, prevalent in our society today, is the first sign of lack of respect for others and an hideous show of lack of class. No one must want the family to be exposed to rude and crude language. When he was alive, my member of the clergy would tell me, “Using profanity is just a sign of the lack of vocabulary.” People fall back on profanity because they lack a way to express themselves. This made a real impact on me when I was growing up. It did not stop me from using profanity but it made me power it. Many kids today are taught that the absence of “class” is fashionable and is the way to act in today’s society. It is lessons like this that our kids involve into their adult life and then pass these lessons on to their children with the many improper attitudes in this area conduct. What do you do when the standards in society are so low I reflect my member of the clergy had the right thought. You just keep setting the ordinary, keep it out front as an issue but realize that in today’s society here are going to be many factors at work to ruin your best efforts. If here were any way to sum it all up, it would be to teach kids to permanently respect themselves and to never fail to show respect to others. They need to know that one of the peak compliments you can receive in life is, “You are a real class act.”
