On balance, you're getting the better end of the trade-off.


While there are exceptions, in my experience, the naturally aggressive kids on the soccer field also tend to be more aggressive OFF the soccer field. I know two kids in particular that my son has played with for the past few years that are very aggressive soccer players, and in talking to their parents over the past few seasons, I know they also deal with behavior issues at school. As a team, we've also had to deal with both of the kids bullying other kids on the team (fortunately my son was never on the receiving end). So while it may frustrate you as a parent to see your kid not being as aggressive in sports as you would like, it's much better overall to have a kind, generous and well behaved kid.

The aggression in sports will come with age and confidence.
