more social and were able to gain confidence with their body. The more interesting fact is that
the kids being involved in sports are most likely to stay out of trouble. That means staying away

saying that they are too involved in sports to be able to focus on those kind of things. If the youth
are involved and occupied by playing in sports then they would be focused on getting better and
not worry about anything else. Another reason this article explains is that while they are active in
sports they maintain a good health and remain healthier. This article is important to the research
