How To Avoid Being A Parent Behaving Badly At Sports Events


SO FAR POLICE HAVEN’T CAUGHT UP WITH HER. A NEW LESSON TONIGHT INVOLVING HIGH SCHOOL SPORTS AND IT’S NOT JR. THE STUDENTS BUT THE PARENTS AND MORE SPECIFICALLY SIDELINED PARENTS. MEG BAKER REPORTS ON THE NEW VIDEO BEING RELEASED. PARENTS CAN EXPERIENCE A ROLLER COASTER OF EMOTIONS WHILE WATCHING THEIR KIDS PLAY. THINGS GET A LITTLE TOO HEATED IN THE STANDS. THERE’S A FATHER BEHIND ME YELLING AT A STUDENT. HE WAS LIKE YOU ARE — YOU ARE JUST MAD BECAUSE YOU ARE LOSING. THIS AND THAT. LIKE — CURSING AT HIM. LIKE RELAX. IT’S JUST A GAME.. Reporter: A NEW VIDEO RELEASED BY THE NATIONAL FEDERATION OF HIGH SCHOOL ASSOCIATIONS REMINDS PARENTS TO BE SUPPORTIVE, NOT OVER BEARING, SET A GOOD EXAMPLE AND SOME OUT OF THE BOX SUGGESTIONS. CONSIDER EXERCISING BEFORE THE EVENT. A SHORT WALK MAY BE HELPFUL TO RELIEVE STRESS. Reporter: THE ATHLETIC DIRECTOR FOR NORTH BRUNSWICK TOWNSHIP SAID HE PLANS TO USE THE VIDEO AT PRE-SEASON PARENT MEETINGS TO HELP ADULTS UNDERSTAND THE PERSPECTIVE OF THE STUDENT AND COACHES. I THINK NUMBER ONE IS FACING ADVERSITY. FAILURE CITY APART OF GROWTH AND FUTURE SUCCESS. IT’S IMPORTANT THAT STUDENT ATHLETES LEARN HOW TO FAIL AS WELL AS WHEN. Reporter: STEVE IS A LAWYER WHO REPRESENTS COACHES AND IS ONE HIMSELF. HE CALLS NEGATIVE PARENT BEHAVIOR AN EPIDEMIC. THEY JUST ARE — HAVE A COMPLAINT ABOUT THEIR SON OR DAUGHTER NOT STARTING OR NOT BEING IN THE CERTAIN POSITION. NOW YOU SEE KIDS, EVERYTHING HAS TO GO RIGHT AND IF SOMETHING GOES WRONG, A PARENT FEELS LIKE THEY HAVE TO FIX IT OR A KID THINKS THEY HAVE TO FIX IT. INSTEAD OF LEARNING THAT. Reporter: IF A PARENT HAS A PROBLEM WITH A COACH THE VIDEO SUGGESTS FIRST TAKING24 HOURS TO LET EMOTION CALM. THEN MEET WITH THE COACH AND STEP IN IF NECESSARY. REMEMBER, SPORTS ARE SUPPOSED TO BE FUN.
