My sons didn't want to play baseball, or wrestle, or lacrosse. They are adults now.
My daughter wants to participate in everything. She is six. Some activities are for a few weeks, months or a season. I don't push her to join groups she is not interested in.
On the other hand, I don't want her sitting around doing nothing. One Wednesdays, she bowls. Starting in April she will play softball. She wants to take horseback-riding lessons...and swimming in the summer. And gymnastics if it can be squeezed into her schedule...
