Too Young for Soccer

Q: “I really love to play soccer, and I like to kick a ball with my daughter. My wife thinks I’m trying to push her to play soccer. I think it will help her to be more coordinated as she grows up. She doesn’t have to play soccer, but isn’t it OK for her to play ball?”

A: Kicking a soccer ball around with your daughter is certainly good for her as long as she’s interested in doing it, too. At your daughter’s age, kicking a ball with you is a wonderful way for you to play a game together, although it isn’t wise to prepare her for organized sports just yet.
