Should I be my child’s coach?
There have been parents who have coached their children into great athletes but, from my observation, many of these relationships seem unhealthy. You need to find the right coach that fits your child and then let them do their job. You should be a positive support to your young athlete. Be the person that they can come to, to express their feelings and needs. Be there for them during their wins and their losses. Ultimately, you are the most important person and role model in their lives. They look up to you and want your approval. You be the parent, let the coach be the coach!
