    Great read. It could also apply to parenting in general.

    I thought it was going to be a rant about the cost to pay for kids sports. 😅

    So true, sport gives kids so much more than the actual sport.

    All listed and May I also add… I pay for my kids to play sports so they are to busy playing sport to be ‘busy’ doing things they shouldn’t be doing. ! It’s worked so far. 😀😀 Mind you I’m so bloody busy being a taxi driver I don’t get to be ‘busy’ doing anything except being busy taking them.to sports hahahaha.

    In their 2017 budget, the NSW Government included an “Active Kids Rebate” that parents can use to claim back $100 per school child per calendar year on the cost of sports registration or membership fees.
