Passion should be a factor when picking an activity. If your child is particularly passionate about hockey or dance, it’ll make it easier on everyone if they can focus on that activity. If they’re a gifted violinist, let them focus on that and scrap the lacrosse practice.

It makes it easier for the parents and children if you don’t have to fight about going to practices because it’s something they truly love. It’s also easier for parents if they aren’t shuttling their kids all over the city six nights a week, but just to the dance studio or just to the arena.
