Low social and economic status have very often a negative impact on young people, it can lead to exclusion from society. In particular, from an early age, cases of social exclusion can be noticed only because of different economic affiliations. Other children may feel entitled to exclude the other and that’s why they call it different. The child, because of these episodes, feels insecure and has a bad mood because it is considered different from the rest.
An adult needs to find the right strategy to help prevent such behavior in children immediately. Doing sport for a child with such problems may be a good idea to monitor these behaviors.
For example, in a sport like Muaythai, trainings take place in groups, which in turn ensures a constant relationship between peers; it allows children to meet and deal with each other and be a part of the same group. In such situations, every social difference disappears and the child treats the training partner as an equal. This sport discipline, in particular, adheres to the principle that what should come first for everyone is respect for the other person. In Muaythai it is necessary to be involved, willing to act and constant competition, which becomes a motivation to improve.
The trainer has a decisive role: in fact, he has to deal with the dynamics of relationships that are born among children and encourage them to respect and support each other. At the same time, he must approach each child individually because each student has his own special problems. When a child is aware of his abilities, they realize that they gain a place in sport, feel included in the group and accepted. Together, it provides self-confidence and the child finds its place in society.
In this way, thanks to its qualities and skills, the child opposes social exclusion: he is encouraged to engage and develop self-esteem.
Muaythai is one of the most suitable sports for teenagers, thanks to which you can form your own identity. The coach plays a major role here because he becomes a reference point for the teenager, helping him to discover his skills and competences, teaching him to believe in himself.
The trainer greets the teenager in his group, motivates him to achieve the best results. During the training, the youth experiment with their skills and learn to recognize their weaknesses, then work on them, striving for continuous improvement.
