Focus on the Joy of Watching Your Kids Play
Coach Brent shares a little parenting advice in the wake of the youth baseball parent altercation video currently making its rounds on social media. As parents, let’s remember to focus on the joy of watching our kids play, not the results. At the end of the day, it’s not about wins or losses, flawless execution of plays, or an ump’s call. Letting our kids know we’re interested in their activities and they’re loved is all that really matters. That’s what our kids care about most.
“Whether they become a professional athlete or a professional in any other field of life, they will remember how their parents helped them navigate their childhood when it came to their passions.”– Steph Curry, NBA Basketball Player
