Yahoo Sports had a great article entitled: What Makes A Nightmare Sports Parent — And What Makes A Great One. Surveyers asked hundreds of college athletes for their memories and what were their overwhelming responses?
Their best memory was of their parents simply saying, “I love to watch you play.”
Their worst: the ride home.
In other words, parents shouldn’t be sniping at or second-guessing or lecturing their son or daughter on the way home after a game. Give them time to decompress after a hard-fought contest.
