Many parents of young kids believe that more is better, that they are giving their child an edge by narrowing in on one sport, or even that it is a matter of competitive survival. The reality, however, is very different. Studies consistently document the dangers that include the child’s overall development, dangers in terms of injury to growing bodies, and the danger of burnout.
