Young people don’t like to play golf, or go out and participate in any other sport for that matter. I think it’s kind of natural to want to stay at home and play videogames or watch endless supply of movies instead of going out and being active. The latter requires too much energy and time. In my opinion, that’s why golf is slowly dying. It simply not fit enough to compete with other forms of entertainment that are available today. I believe 21st century will go down in human history as the century of entertainment – because of the abundance of it.

 I believe it’s every responsible parents’ duty to at least try to get their kids interested in some type of sport. I’m not arguing that playing games or watching movies is evil, but it certainly shouldn’t be the only source of entertainment. When i see kids who are attached to their smartphones and tablets watching some stuff, i sometimes do worry about the future. Personally, i’m trying to engage my kids to play golf with me right now. I’ve had mixed successes, mostly due to the errors i’ve made. I’ve also learned from those mistakes and plan on to go forward with my promotion of golf.

 It may seem like it, but it’s not that hard to get kids interested in playing golf. The best and simplest way i found is buying golf clubs and apparel for them. I myself try to not be materialistic and teach them to see value in things other than material possessions. But still, with enough oversight over my actions, i think the goal of getting my kids excited about golf is worth the risk. By the way, good golf clubs for kids are pretty hard to find. This tutorial helped me understand all the ins and outs of buying best golf clubs for children. They love getting new stuff like golf clubs and stylish shoes, and easily get attached to them. By extension, they get attached to golf, and whenever i tell them that i’m going to play golf, they always want to come along. I take them sometimes, whenever i have time and energy.

 The hardest thing about getting children to play golf is their lack of patience. Not only them, but i think the whole world has become much less patient these days. They expect to learn golf in one day and when they realize that it’s impossible, they get exhausted easily. That’s more or less true for most people, and fortunately for me, my kids do have a bit of patience. But i think i deserve a little bit of credit as well – i make it easy to just play and enjoy golf. Some people make it about competition and criticize their children’s games around the clock, hoping that it will motivate them to get better. I don’t think that approach has ever worked or will ever work though.

If something is fun, children are less likely to get bored and want to give it up. Learning golf is definitely one of the things that can be fun, if done properly, of course. Game itself is definitely not easy to learn, but with the right attitude, you can teach it to your kids without getting them exhausted. By the right attitude, i mean attitude of the parent, not of the kids. By that, i mean being patient with your children when they make mistakes, which they inevitably will. Whenever they do, just let it go and encourage them to try again.

 If you don’t think you have what it takes to teach kids properly, you can hire golf tutors or sign them up for lessons. Those aren’t cheap, but they are certainly worth it. Tutors are people who specialize in being the best golf teacher they can be, so they will do much better job of teaching kids how to play golf than anyone else.

  Golf tutor should be someone with plentiful experience of playing golf. He or she should also be trained as a teacher at the same time.Trainer should be able to keep an open mind and be open to suggestions from kids. Golf teacher should also be patient and calm, as well as capable of controlling his emotions during stressful times.  I believe those are the basic expectations that all teachers should meet.

If you do choose the path of getting a golf tutor for your child, make sure to choose good one, because your choice will have significant results. A lot depends on having the right teacher. The right teacher will teach you many different things about golf and keep the process light and relaxing, while the wrong teacher might have good intentions, but have wrong methods of achieving her goals and ultimately lead you to burnout. That’s why it is so important to find golf tutor who not only understands golf, but also understands the psychology of a child and knows how to approach children to get them excited about something. If it takes longer to find good teacher, definitely take your time. Golf lessons will wait, but choosing the wrong teacher will have dire consequences. Happiness and fitness of your child is on stake.
  Overall, i think i’ve made my case that child’s development is extremely important. Parents must be careful and encouraging when they try to get children excited about golf or other hobbies. They must be careful because you don’t want to overdo it. Your child might not like golf and that’s fine, you can find other hobby for him or her. Your main objective should be to get them excited about outdoors hobbies while keeping things fun and interesting. It may not be golf. It may be soccer. Chances are, your children will discover what they like themselves, you just have to be there to support them in doing whatever they love.
