If your son really showed no interest in sports yet would you place him on a team anyway? You know how parents are these days with kids starting at three years old, playing 2 and 3 sports a year. I would like for my son to try things out to see if he likes them but I don't want to force it on him. Would you want until he shows an interest?

I have learned from my son (4.5) that he was serious when he said he did not want to do gymnastics at 2 or soccer at 3. He said he did not want to and I told him he would like it once he started playing and he hated every min of both. When he turned 4 he started asking on his own to take Karate classes. I was very hesitant due to past experiences with him in sports and he LOVES it. So with my next child I will not sign her up for anything she does not ask to be signed up for. I will wait for her to show an interest in something and save myself the time money and trouble. I will suggest things to her often though so she will know they are options.

No I wouldn't but I did tell my boys they had to pick a sport of their choice this summer because they aren't just going to lay around the house or just play outside all day.
