Putting morality aside, it might be pretty stupid. My Dad loves baseball, and he encouraged me (in a healthy way) to play baseball as a kid. Well, it turns out I have no natural ability at baseball, but I do have quite a bit of natural ability at hockey. Had I played hockey from a young age, I might be quite good today, instead of merely being above my peers who started in their mid-late 20s.

I guess the moral of my personal story is, try to figure out what the kid likes and/or is good at, and encourage them to pursue that.
