Forgive the alliteration, but our Parents and Playing Time post continues to be popular with readers. Here is a recent email we received:
I just read your piece on “parents and playing time” and was blown way. That is great stuff and something I wish I would’ve stumbled on much earlier in my current season. It really helped me mentally with a difficult situation I’m dealing with right now as a coach. Thank you and keep up the good work.
It seems that from the youth sports level all the way up through high school and beyond, parents continue to feel the need to “help” their children get what they want in their sports careers.
And, it seems like more organizations need to have their parents watch the Supportive Parent presentation!
