An interesting take on American v Chinese attitudes towards sports for kids
The American dad writing in the blog post link below used to live in China and now lives in Chicago. He’s surprised at how much time, attention and money goes into kids’ sports here. An intriguing point of view. Though American parents might say that sports are in addition to the 6 hours a day kids spend in school learning, so it’s a balance.
Though at the same time, China is working to get more kids playing soccer. Unclear, however, if this is merely to beef up the nation’s overall standings worldwide or because it’s supposed to make for better-rounded adults.
