From Baseball to Life

Teamwork and focus learned in sports help a child on — and off — the field.


Filed Under: Sports for ADHD Children

Our 10-year-old has been involved in team sports for two years, and they've had a huge impact on him.

Baseball has taught him the importance of focus, and football has taught him that teamwork is everything. He loves both of his teams, and it's wonderful to see the things he learned on the playing field come through in the classroom and at home.
