Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to analyse the attitudes and degree of interest and implication of parents whose school-age children participate in extracurricular physical and sports activities. Particular attention has been paid to the responsibility parents bestow on the different people and institutions that are linked to promoting sports in school-age children. We have also analysed the relationship between parents’ attitudes towards their children’s sporting habits and their own degree of involvement with sports. Furthermore, we have analysed the implications of these results in order to encourage parental involvement in promoting physical and sports activities.
