Our children’s future in sports
« on: January 26, 2016, 10:16:04 PM »
 :) Our children’s future in sports lies in the hands and knowledge of parents, coaches and themselves. All parents can use support to enhance and accelerate positive youth development experiences, including critical and life changing life lessons along the way. This post will periodically post powerful guidance based bits of knowledge for both parents and coaches who want kids to have enjoyable, fun and meaningful youth sporting experiences.

The first topic that will be covered will be  “Keeping Children’s Sports in Perspective”

We need to remind ourselves as to what we need to do to support our children’s desire to play sports
·   Realizing and maintaining Perspective
·   Maintaining and practicing Patience
·   Reinforcing with Gratitude
·   Implementing our actions with our intentions 

We need to remind ourselves of the reasons kids want to play sports:
·   To have fun and feel gratified
·   Be allowed to choose what sport he/she would like to excel in
·   Your child’s deep desire to be encouraged by your involvement to improve their skills
·    To participate and be a part of a team
·   The excitement of competition

The following week will expand on the perspective-based topics above.
