My 8 y/o son jumps at the opportunity to sign up for every sport. The problem is that he is not at all competitive which does have its benefits....but it also means that he is really not motivated at all to do his best. He is in tackle football and they mean serious business. He could care less if he runs the slowest, misses every play or sits on the side the whole time playing in the grass. I try to be encouraging without discouraging him from playing because I don't want to be pushy. However, now he is at the age when not "everyone wins" and I can see his teammates getting frustrated with him when they have to wait for him. Any advice please????
