8 Things Young Athletes Wish They Could Tell Parents

 

  • I like it when you come to my games and practices but I want you to be silent most of the time.

 

  • I often value my coach’s opinion more than yours.

 

  • I hate being late. It is important to me that I arrive at games and practices on time.

 

  • I only want your input when I ask for it.

 

  • It is nerve racking and distracting when you yell out instructions to me during an important moment in my game.

 

  • Just because you played the same sport, doesn’t mean your experiences are the same as mine.

 

  • Winning isn’t what I enjoy most about playing.

 

  • Sometimes I wish you would let me be the authority, the one to teach you a skill, rule or technique.
