Why Extreme Sports Are Good For Your Kids

Childhood is the most interesting phase of a person’s life. This is primarily because apart from having fun you can indulge in activities which keep you happy. Most parents want their kids to start sports at an early age so that they remain physically and mentally fit even when they grow up. However, the priority for sports for kids is changing and many of them are opting for adventure or extreme sports to keep them engaged. If you are also confused about its efficacy here are some reasons why extreme sports can be a benefit for your child.

Independence- When your child takes part in sports in school or community events they are mostly in groups or in other words a team effort. However, when he is taking part in adventure sports he is all alone and taking an effort to accomplish the same on his own. This gives the kid a sense of independence which otherwise is difficult to get. Life’s certain lessons are learned when out in the open and this is just one of them.

The real feel- Kids these days are engaged more with electronics then experience the real feel of being outdoors. Instead of playing in the ground they prefer watching football highlight online and cheer for the game. Unfortunately doing that does not help in any manner as they do not gain any life experiences in the process. By being outdoors and susceptible to nature’s fury the child enjoys a thrill which is tough to match.

Connect with nature- In today’s times; a child’s relationship with nature is minimal. Between school and other activities, they rarely get a chance to explore the beauty of what has been provided to us. This is a flawed approach to their upbringing that must be done away with immediately. When they indulge in extreme sports, they can experience the beauty of nature and also gain a lot of knowledge about how things work with nature.

Concentration improvement- Normally there are no ways to improve your kid’s concentration. Either you can make him participate in classes targeted at doing so or leave him outdoors with extreme sports activities. When he indulges in them, he knows for sure that he cannot divert his attention from the task at hand. This invariably improves the concentration and his attention span also gets a boost.

Simulation- Being physically active is good for the body as such but doing extreme sports benefits the brain too. Kids overcome the fear of heights and learn how not to panic when in trouble. Instead, they also gain insights on how to survive in the toughest of scenarios and emerge victoriously.

With time the quest to keep your child busy is becoming tough to fulfill. Extreme sports are good for both the body and mind and if your child does them regularly he would benefit in more than one way. Apart from becoming strong and fearless, he experiences things which he cannot if he adopts a sedentary lifestyle. So, go on and book a session for extreme sports for your kid today and see how he unfurls his wings and soars ahead.

Snapchatting Everest Climbers Reach Summit After 29 Days

Professional mountaineers Cory Richards and Adrien Ballinger have now been snapchatting under the Everestnofilter account for nearly two months. After much thought and deliberation they saw Tuesday (May 24) as the correct time to start their final summit push.  Neither of these very accomplished climbers have reached the summit of 29,029' without supplemental oxygen, something that less than 3% of Everest climbers attempt. While dozens die every year attempting the summit with breathing

My favorite part about bear videos this summer have been the screams. After the reactions in this video of a bear opening a car door in Yellowstone, I didn't think that I would hear a male voice at a higher pitch. I was wrong. When Rodney Ginn realizes his Mammoth Lakes, CA home has been broken into by a mama bear and her two cubs, he pretty much just loses it (rightly so).  RELATED: Bear Officially Out-Evolves Yellowstone Tourists, Opens Car Door The mother bear charges Rodney up the stairs,
