ParentCircle

Success in sports is the result of years of discipline, hard work, resilience and the motivation to go out and perform against all odds. Sportspersons toil hard for years with the aim of giving their best and winning the gold medal.

Along with sportspersons, their parents and other family members also deserve our admiration. Without the support and encouragement of family members, it wouldn't be possible to perform well in any field, including sports.

If you see your child showing an interest in any sport, go ahead and encourage her. Provide her with whatever she needs to learn and do well in that sport. Maybe your child will one day win a gold medal for India.

Flip through our ClipBook on some of the winners of the coveted Gold medal in the recent Asian Games to inspire yourself and your child.
