A lot of our cyber heroes dream about football. In the context of football training, I often hear from parents that they don’t wear a prosthesis to class for fear of breaking it. The risk of breaking a prosthesis in football, as with almost any sport, is higher than exercising at home, for example. Completely normal, non-robotic arms and legs also break, but that’s no reason to leave your child at home and not allow them to engage in sports. Yes, a prosthesis can be broken, but it can also be repaired. And a prosthetic that’s been through a few repairs is always better than a perfectly preserved one sitting on a shelf. So put it on, don’t be scared, don’t tell them off if it breaks, and remember that it is primarily a contribution to your child’s health, his proper coordination, and the development of a strong and symmetrical corset muscle.
And I also want to note separately that if there is no football academy in your city, or there is no way of taking a child to regular training sessions, but the boys dreams, then do it yourself. There are many training videos, recommendations, and exercises online. It might not be professional sport, but it is still a very important activity. It will be highly enjoyable and important for a child to be cool on the field with the boys, and including a close adult in the hobby will create trusting relationships and great memories.
