Hey Parents! Shout words of encouragement from the sidelines, not discouragement

The coaches at Kids In Sports focus on the importance of positive reinforcement not competition or being the best, and it is important for parents to re-emphasize that as well. It is important for parents to embrace the unconditional love and emotions at an early age because it will be gone in the blink of any eye. Let them develop their own behaviors and emotions with sports and show them end of season appreciation.
It is important as parents to offer your children perspective, don’t express disappointment to them, allow them to feel bad, guide them in setting new goals, and love them and support their dreams.
