An Emerging Problem with Youth Sports

Youth sports are a gift to us as parents. We’re off the clock, sitting down and able to enjoy watching our child participate in a game or match. But how many times does an enjoyable game get interrupted by sideline stupidity—the parent who is yelling at their child, coaching from the sidelines or harassing the referee? Often!

Take a listen to this episode to find out how we can flip the script on youth sports and get back to enjoying the sport and building up character in our kids. Modeling is EVERYTHING. Learn how to relax, be more hands off and positively encourage passion and grit in your kids at the same time.
