I have heard this rumor that football is somehow helpful to growing up for children. I know that sports are always healthy but I would like to know if this people who say this have some reason or just think that sprinting and kicking will just make legs longer.

i thinks it is true..football is not only sports but it can enlarge their reaction,to be more healthy and enlarge their self confidence..they can be as maradonna when they play, they think they are zidane when they dribbling ball and maybe they thought that they are buffon when become as keeper. and the result of the game is continued to his real world

Am not really a paediatrician . Nor am some Psychiatrist. Football could possibly do what you think it does , or maybe not . But i can assure you , when you are very young and is heavily involved in any sport , it would only be good to you . The feel , the passion , the running around , the blood you spend shouting , for the ball . It does so many things . It builds your character , stamina , and in fact it also makes you spend quality time . And for all you know , you could probably have talent ( or not , like me lol ) , but doesn't matter . Some people get ambition , some kids , end up being stars because they started at that age . I didn't start to become a star ,but i had a fantastic childhood with plenty of sports , and football being one of the prime most along with Cricket . And frankly , its a beautiful game .
