helpful article if your child plays sports
I'll be the first to admit that there are many great people with great character playing professional sports! While I'm tempted to name names, I'll refrain for the sake of playing it safe.
Then there are the many whose egos are more bloated and gas-filled than the Hindenburg. Like the infamous zeppelin, they quickly rise to fame yet eventually crash and burn taking many with them.
The seeds of such disaster often start in T-Ball, Pee Wee Football, gymnastics, and other activities when some parents begin to place sports performance and participation over good behavior and character. In their excitement about their child's athletic abilities, they blindly give their kids a "get out of jail free" card. As the snowball rolls downhill toward college and professional sports, far too many young people become narcissistic and destined for a fall.
Let me be clear: I'm not pointing the finger at youth sports, the many great youth coaches, or the multitude of caring and conscientious parents. Instead, I'm suggesting that each of us be aware that in our sports-crazed culture it's easy to lose sight of what's most important.
Involvement in sports can give our children amazing opportunities to develop character and humility when we remember just a few things:
- It's okay to take your own child out of the game if he/she is being a poor sport or acting disrespectfully.
Of course, it's smart to coordinate this with the coach ahead of time.
- It's okay not to take your child to a game if he or she is treating you like a doormat and acting arrogant at home.
Again, make sure this isn't a surprise to the coach.
- Remember that it's really good for your kids to have an equal balance of success and failure.
- In my book, Parenting Kids To Become the People Employers Really Want and America Desperately Needs! I discuss why America's future depends on children learning how to cope with disappointment without giving up.
- Focus on keeping it positive and fun.
What sort of memories do we want our kids to have? Some of my most treasured are ones involving Mom and Dad at my Little League games.
Thanks for reading! Our goal is to help as many families as possible. If this is a benefit, forward it to a friend.
