Finding the Silver Lining in Activities

Youth activities can be all-consuming.  Whether it is a sport, academic, or other pursuits, their calendars fill up quickly.  This has the opportunity to value doing over being.  However, it does not have to be that way.  The time spent in these activities can build relationships with others and even provide valuable one on one time with a parent.
