The child wants to quit playing sports

Sooner or later, many children involved in sports think about quitting training. Sometimes this decision is a surprise for parents, but more often than not, certain signals precede it.

“You love my brother more than me”

Children constantly consider how much sweets you give them and their brothers or sisters. They compare who you love more.

Parents find it difficult to cope with this rivalry between children, because adults begin to doubt whether they treat their children fairly (although in reality they try their best to be impartial). The desire to please both children puts great pressure on them. Parents also worry about the fact that the children do not like each other, and really want the children to get along with each other.
