Sandy L asks:
What non team sports do you think are useful to learn for a kid (swimming, biking, etc)
Well, as you say, swimming is a big one here– that could save a life. Biking is also useful… biking is a great form of transportation. I’d never really thought of the option of not learning how to ride a bike, though to be honest, I didn’t learn until I was 7 and we moved out of a city and had a place to practice.
In terms of “etc”… I am honestly not thinking of any. There probably are things that would be useful like, say, martial arts, but we’re not having our kids do them. My sister would argue in favor of dance because of strength and balance and stuff. Others could make that argument with gymnastics.
Grumpy Nation, what non-team sports do you think are useful to learn?
