Let The Coach Coach– You Praise Hustle and Teamwork

by Amy Hilbrich Davis

The only adult coaching from the sidelines should be THE coach. Let the expert do the job you hired him/her to do. If you want to yell, scream out words of encouragement like, “Great hustle!, or ” Nice teamwork!” Your child doesn’t need to hear you bark orders or criticize. It’s not only embarrassing for your kids, but annoying and tiresome to everyone around you. Clap, encourage, and honor your kids and their teammates. In twenty years, your kids won’t remember wins or losses, but they will remember how you made them feel.
