Being around negative people all day can suck the life out of you and make you miserable. That being said….
*a little positivity for kids playing sports goes a long way.
*don’t tell them they had some good things going and then list all of the negative things that happened
*don’t be rude to people trying to help you out….not all mom’s/girls don’t know things about sports(& by the way some dads/guys don’t)….I was raised on baseball…all aspects of baseball…I know a thing or two about the sport…I learn best by watching and listening and I take offense when I politely tell you how to help my son succeed with a new tool and you look at me like I am stupid.
*please please please don’t count the mistakes your kid makes so you can tell him later
*if you like winning so much they have teams for adults!
I gave my little one a list of 3 things he did well in his game after the coach talk because it was such a negative day….I like to end on a positive note.
These were things I saw at both my boys games today unfortunately it got worse as our day progressed
Ggggggrrr sports seasons are tough for optimists
