Girls seem to know the same pattern of development nowadays they did in last decades as well. Moreover, if they are a single child, over protective moms and dads might cut their independence and enthusiasm at a young age, and they might develop in spoiled little princesses. If you don’t want to fall in the same toxic parenting patterns like others, you might want to encourage them to get involved in a team game such as netball. Playing social netball in London has proved to be quite a great method to combat spoiled behaviour in both boys and girls. But let’s see how it can influence a girl’s development.
It helps them become less self-centred
She is her daddy’s little prices. Her mother gives her all the things she couldn’t have when she was little. However, they both contribute in creating a self-centred human being that fellow colleagues will despise due to this behaviour in school and later in life. In netball, there is no “I”. There is a “We” and all team members must contribute to the team’s well-being. There is no star of the show, other than the team as a whole. She will become more aware that while she is an important part of a team, helping it succeed, she is not everything that matters. Her colleagues matter equally, without them no accomplishment being possible.
She will learn to take responsibility of her actions
Cheaters get caught in netball, and she’d better learn that from the beginning. There are no excuses, there are no others to blame for her actions, and all these will make your precious little one more aware about the impact of her actions. Parents in their tries of helping out their daughters oftentimes amputate responsibility. However, she must learn that all actions have consequences, and just as she wants to be praised for the good things she does, there is another version for this.
Decision making aptitudes that count
Short time, fast game. This is how netball could be described in four simple words. Your indecisive girl might help to develop decision-making aptitudes. Between the moment she catches the ball and her move, there are left three seconds. In those three seconds, she must assess the game conditions, find her colleagues and make her move. Being able to work under pressure never hurt anybody.
