I’m passionate about sports and I I think he exports has so much that we can’t. Give to our kids almost like lessons. Hands the best he. When they sorted out there and sign. We also home. He was upset about the rough play and putts and with all good intentions. He went down to confront the coach. And it turned out disastrous. Usually when regal dessert on the sidelines as a coach or as a parent it’s all about. Winning and yet if you pass parents to list what they want their kids. Doesn’t come up high on the list that. Our hard work determination perseverance. How to deal with defeat. Those are alarmed. We lose one of the things I’ll do it all actually and now pieces of paper and give my parents and say hey just think you’re you don’t have your. Own kid’s name on this piece of paper you look at that child today and find two good things he doesn’t today’s game. So what I’m not is not given the role of the coach for the post game analysis quickly. Let’s just say he missed the winning play whistle blows. He plots in the seat next to you on the ride home. We just don’t. And sometimes we say you know what. Same thing. Go to windy to get the frost conceptually what they want let’s say you had the times you’ve been on a business trip what does it mean that game calling you little son or daughter to. Any Matthews that’s my son’s you do today. What is Matt had his worst game of the year. You’ve just put all the pressure and how did you do today. The question.

  1. This is really great. Kids put enough pressure on themselves even at an entry level of sports that they don't need the added pressure of parental expectations.

  2. This does not work when you get to a certain level of play. Some kids want to be pushed and win. This video for the times where everyone gets a trophy.

  3. I would title this one "how to be a great sports parent" instead of what not to be. Motivate parents to read this because it will help them honor the game and support their kids in the sports they love.

  4. Terrible that a grown man or woman needs to watch this kind of video. Society has turned selfishly nuts .

  5. This stupid y do u not want your parent to push u cause that just means she wants u to have a better life then they do they will push to get that college degree go play baseball do everything that they want u to do

  6. This was great. I coach junior pee wee football. Her philosophy is just like mine. I give my parents a similar run down about their behavior and expectations for their kids before every season as well as what my coaching philosophy is. They really appreciate it and it brings our parents together as part of the team as well.

  7. No….When a parent goes nuts it's about "CONTROL". On the sidelines a parent loses all control. We have become a nation of control freaks, mostly fueled by the "I have my rights" movement lately. When a parent turns control of their child over to a coach, it drives many into a state that they cannot control.

  8. "…approached the coach with positive intentions to discuss the rough play on the ice …"

  9. Wait, you can’t ask your kid how they did in their game? Sure, they may have had a bad game. They may have made big mistakes. The reaction as a parent is to encourage THEM to not focus on those negatives for the next time. Talking out the errors with them lets them analyze their performance as you guide them through it in a positive way. To let a child know that bad games will happen and that is ok, that’s why we can ask our kids “How was the game? How did you do?” It’s because we aren’t going to beat them up about it and not let them beat themselves up either.

  10. low class, low income americans put way too much emphasis on silliness like sports… it's cheap,boring entertainment….
