GREAT PIECE FOR PARENTS WITH
CHILDREN PLAYING YOUTH SPORTS
It's not about you, it's about them. Do not live your own sports dreams through your kids.
It's their turn now, let them make their choices both good and bad.
Never talk to a coach about your child's playing time after a game. Actually you never should.
You should have your kid do that. That said, if you just can't help yourself, send an email the
next day, and ask for some phone time.
NEVER yell at officials. They are trying. How would you like it if someone came to your job
and screamed at you ? Not, So, Much. If you have a real issue file a grievence the next day.
Do NOT coach your kid from the sideline. Your job is to be a cheerleader, not a coach.
If you wanted to coach, you should have volunteered.
It is EXTREMELY UNLIKELY you are raising a professsional athlete. I promise you.
Relax let them have a good time and learn the lesssons they are supposed to be learning in sports.
Kids should play the sport that is in season until at least middle school. Then they can
decide which one or two sports they want to play and become more focused. Cross training
prevents injuries and burnout.
If you have nothing to nice to say, sit down and be quiet. Don't be "THAT" parent.
If you are losing your mind on the sideline of a game. It's time to look in the mirror
and figure out why. It's not normal to care that much about sports. Put that energy
into something more productive.
Let them fail. Forgotten equipment, not working out, not practicing at home ? Let them
suffer the consequenced of that it will make them better.
Your kids are watching you. Make them proud not embarrassed.
