In all cases, information, education, and training were the common themes for remedies to what ails what should be a safe space within the eye of the storm these children call lives.
I want to take a second to remind you to say these 5 words as much as possible to your young athlete, “I love to watch you play”.
Make sure when you are headed home from the game this is a time of fun, win or lose, not a time of coaching. We all need to ensure we are informed on how informed our child’s coach is, what is their level of expertise?
We, as parents, are the controlling factor, we make the drives, we pay the dues(literal and figurative). I would like to apply an old bit of wisdom: “Permit me to issue and control the money of a nation, and I care not who makes its laws!” -Amschel Mayor James Rothschild.
In other words, whoever controls the purse-strings, controls everything. Remember to wield all power with respect, but stand firm in your convictions that are backed by facts and realism so you can best arm your athlete to navigate this world of distractions while making it enjoyable.
In closing, I will leave you with this pot-o-gold: “With great power, comes great responsibility.”
