Parents get this question a lot:
What sports does Little Johnny play?
I wonder what would happen if the response was:
What arts does Little Timmy do?
In 2017 America, organized sports are a rite of passage for children. We have convinced ourselves that a childhood isn’t complete without the team sport experience.
Why do we have such trouble believing that a child’s life is similarly incomplete without extracurricular arts?
Indeed, I would say, our children need arts more than they need sports.
