    The biggest mistakes parents make when their kids play team sports

    NEWYou can now listen to Fox News articles!

Rori Picker Neiss’ son had a similar experience when he came out as a boy. The two kids, ages 7 and 11, have faced an outpouring of support from their communities and schools. But much of the Missouri legislature doesn’t feel the same way. For three years in a row, Missouri lawmakers have attempted to pass what’s now titled the “Save Women’s Sports Act,” which would prohibit trans girls from playing on girls sports teams. This year, provisions…

    Arizona Adaptive Water Sports Kids Day held for children with disabilities

She was one of dozens who participated in Arizona Adaptive Water Sports Kids Day on Saturday, an event that provides adaptive equipment and makes water sports accessible for disabled youth. “This is the opportunity she has to do something and to gain confidence and to see and meet other…
