Advocate or Educate?
As parents, we all want to see our kids succeed and give them every advantage we can to do so. But there is a fine line between advocating and being over-protective. Youth Sports is more than just playing a game. Youth Sports is about learning life skills that will prepare our children to face adult life head on, tackle challenges, adapt and overcome obstacles in the pursuit of a goal. There is a great deal of learning to be done from failure. Failure teaches us how we need to improve, how to change our approach, and what skills we need to develop in order to succeed.
