The section of the book that especially resonated with me discussed emphasizing internal rewards while still recognizing the importance of external rewards. The language Rhoads uses in the book does an excellent job expressing the impact of both types of rewards on the development of the youth.
I have continued to play sports into my adult life and I actually play more now than when I was younger. My health has improved through this physical activity. Athletics have also helped strengthen relationships with peers as well as across all ages.
Every parent needs to read this book in order to understand how to support athleticism in their child rather than let their child succumb to the computer or TV. The impact will last a lifetime.
