  • a 2 year old is still a baby IMO. They shouldn't be in sports yet

  • never said he was playing a sport.. its about getting him to like a sport. like watching it on tv. and there isnt anything wrong with a 2 yr old to through around a ball or play a sport now...

  • My oldest son, who is 12, played his first season of baseball last year after he showed interest. I don't see a need in making kids do things until they want to.

  • I wouldn't push things like that on a child of any age, especially that young. Let him choose what he likes. Encourage him, but don't push him.
