    This is really great. Kids put enough pressure on themselves even at an entry level of sports that they don't need the added pressure of parental expectations.

    This does not work when you get to a certain level of play. Some kids want to be pushed and win. This video for the times where everyone gets a trophy.

    Fix the captioning on this video

    I would title this one "how to be a great sports parent" instead of what not to be. Motivate parents to read this because it will help them honor the game and support their kids in the sports they love.

    This was great. I coach junior pee wee football. Her philosophy is just like mine. I give my parents a similar run down about their behavior and expectations for their kids before every season as well as what my coaching philosophy is. They really appreciate it and it brings our parents together as part of the team as well.

    this should be retitled "muricans are stupid"

    No….When a parent goes nuts it's about "CONTROL". On the sidelines a parent loses all control. We have become a nation of control freaks, mostly fueled by the "I have my rights" movement lately. When a parent turns control of their child over to a coach, it drives many into a state that they cannot control.

    With all good intentions he went down to confront the coach? He just smashed the glass

    "…approached the coach with positive intentions to discuss the rough play on the ice …"

    Wait, you can’t ask your kid how they did in their game? Sure, they may have had a bad game. They may have made big mistakes. The reaction as a parent is to encourage THEM to not focus on those negatives for the next time. Talking out the errors with them lets them analyze their performance as you guide them through it in a positive way. To let a child know that bad games will happen and that is ok, that’s why we can ask our kids “How was the game? How did you do?” It’s because we aren’t going to beat them up about it and not let them beat themselves up either.

    Yeah… the guy was approaching with good intentions..right..
