    • Hello Andrew, I really loved how you so enthusiastic about how sports can be so impactful on a child’s life, and I couldn’t agree anymore than how you feel. One thing that stands out to me is how you said “sports keep a child away from anxiety or being depressed ” which I didn’t know but now can understand why there so much better for a child’s life. I can relate To this article mostly because of the fact that it reminds me of my young self when I use to play a couple sports, it reminds me of how it kept me out of bad things and people and taught me how to be determined to one thing. Thank you for posting this Andrew I look forward to your future content!

    • Dear: Andrew
      I am afraid of the children not playing sports as much as they use to. I agree in your post, “How would youth be different without sports?” because it’s important for children to exercise because it’s healthy for their body and also mentally fit.
      One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “Kids will be more aware of the amount and type of foods they eat, which is a good habit to build.” I think this is important because it’s true and in the future, those children who watch what they eat can become great sports players and might become one of the best players in the world.
      Another sentence that I amazed by was: “Regular physical activity helps build , and maintain healthy bones, muscles and joints, as well as reduce fat and prevent high blood pressure” This stood out for me because it’s healthy your body and even better when you do physical activities when your younger because you become more healthy and build stronger muscles.

      Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because you seem that you care about future generations and that’s something that I also care about because they are the future of the world. Also, I’m glad you wrote about this because children need a positive influence and need to get engage in more physical activities.
