What spring sport or sports did your child choose to try out for? Have they found “their sport,” or are they still exploring the world of possibilities in the sports world? It’s an interesting sort of dance with your child as you try to guide them in which sport is right for them. On the one hand, there’s you trying to lead the way and steer and guide them into the sport that you grew up playing. Was football your thing? Is your name on the wall of your high school gym for the most aces served in volleyball? On the other hand, there are your child’s sports aspirations that you need to consider. They may possibly choose a different sports path than what you chose, or maybe, they may not choose a sport.
As parents, we want to celebrate and encourage whatever sport or activity they choose. However, there can be times when certain contact sports that your child wants to play may cause you a great deal of stress. The “What ifs” begin swirling around in your head. “What if they get an elbow in the mouth?” “What if they get tackled a bit too hard?”
Let’s face it; unleashing our child to a court or field is difficult. It’s hard not having the protective ability that you normally have when you’re sitting on the sidelines. Things can feel a bit out of your control.
The good news is while you can’t always protect your child from harm or injury, you can take protective measures to protect your sweetpea. A custom athletic mouthguard is a good option to help protect your child’s pearly whites.
Call Sweetpea Smiles when your child decides they want to enter into the arena of the sports world. We will help you protect your child’s beautiful smile.
