    1. Hi Laura, thanks for your thoughtful comment. Glad you found the information in this post helpful for all the sports parents. I totally agree with you. What happens when you compel your child to play a certain sport is that they’ll lose interest very quickly and may not return to it ever. On the other hand, supporting them will aid to achieve greater things in the sport they play.

  11. I think these are great, and they apply to any sport, really. It’s our jobs as parents to be supportive and helpful, not criticize everything and yell like maniacs from the sidelines.

    1. Hi Beth, thank you so much for your thoughtful comment. Glad you found the information in this post helpful for all the sports parents.
