Ten Things Parents of Athletes Should Know
1. It’s not about you, its about them. Do not live your
own sports dreams through your kids. It’s their turn now. Let them make
their own choices, both good and bad.
2. Never talk to a coach about your child’s play time after
a game. Actually you never should. You should have your kid do that.
That said, if you just can’t help yourself, send an email the next day
and ask for some phone time.
3. NEVER yell at referees. They are trying. How would you
like it if someone came to your job and screamed at you? Not. So. Much.
If you have a real issue file a grievance the next day.
5. It is EXTREMELY UNLIKELY you are raising a professional
athlete. I promise you. Relax, let them have a good time and learn the
lessons they are supposed to be learning in sports.
6. Kids should play the sport that is in season until they
are in middle school. Then they can decide which one or two sports they
want to play and become more focused. Cross training prevents injuries
7. If you have nothing nice to say, sit down and be quiet. Don’t be “that” parent.
8. If you are losing your mind on the sideline of game,
it’s time to look in the mirror and figure out why. It’s not normal to
care that much about sports. Put that energy into something more
9. Let them fail. Forgotten equipment, not working out, not
practicing at home? Let them suffer the consequences of that. It will
make them better.
