Even though winning can be rewarding, a new studying is reporting that winning, for kids at least, is not everything. According to the researchers, children are more likely to stay in sports if they find it fun. Winning, on the other hand, has a lesser effect on sports participation.
"We're seeing a lot less activity in kids than we did before," said Edward Laskowski, a physical medication and rehabilitation specialist from the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN reported by USA Today. "About one-third of kids in the U.S. are considered overweight or obese. It's certainly an epidemic."
