Youth Sports Advice

I’ve posted frequently about youth sports as it’s an area I feel passionate about. Parade Magazine had two great articles one Who’s Killing Kids Sports and Raising Responsible Kids . Although the second article doesn’t have the word “sports” in the title it applies directly to sports parents. We have to acknowledge that we as parents are the problem and the solution.

We need to remember that the purpose of sports is to help kids deal with success and with failure. Both lessons are equally important. I remember doing a paper in high school about cooperation and competition and for the first time realizing that a good team fosters both. As a parent try to remember that losing has many more valuable life lessons than winning.
