Team players are not just people who play but people who know how to work with other people. Sport is an excellent opportunity for your kids to learn valuable social skills. It helps them appreciate the individuality of a team member while imparting the value of working and cooperating as a well-functioning unit.
Here are a few tips for you to raise your child with the qualities of a team player:
Teach your child to play by the rules. Rules exist for a purpose - to let the game be not just enjoyable or competitive, but also fair.
He should take responsibility for the sports equipment. It should be stored and taken care of properly.
A good team player does not enjoy at the cost of other’s efforts, so you should discourage all forms of bullying.
If your child sees something wrong or unjustified happening during the game, they should stand up for themselves or for those around them.
Encourage your child to resolve their disputes on their own without requiring adult intervention or without resorting to tantrums or violence.
One of the most important values you should inculcate in your child is punctuality. He/she should know how to respect everyone’s time.
He should learn to appreciate everybody’s uniqueness and the contributions that each member makes to the team.
Teach your child to lose with grace. Nobody likes a sore loser. Accepting defeat is perhaps the biggest sign of being a team player.
Learning to be team player will make children efficient team players and competent team leaders in both a personal as well as professional setting.
