Youth sports has the potential to be a wonderful, life altering, and positive experience for our children and our families. It can also be negative, and detrimental to our relationships with our children, and their own psyche.
Being the parent of a young athlete is not easy, but there is hope, as long as we are not afraid to look for some guidance. Some of us can rely upon our own athletic experiences to guide us with our own kids. At times this may work great but a vast majority of time our children may think and act so differently then we did which can lead parents to become frustrated and may ultimately end up flying blind as they guide their child through their own sports experience.
In this section we'll give you some tips on how to be a better sports parent and how you can work together with your children and your children's coaches in helping to make everyone's time with sports is more productive and enjoyable.
