8 Parent-Child Conversations That Can Help Your Athlete Through a Hard Season
When a season isn’t going well, you have to guide your child through the problem. Here are some great questions to help you start the conversation and find solutions:
Why do you want to play?
Mention all the wrong reasons to play – trying to be like parents or siblings, wanting to be noticed, wanting to be a star.
Also talk about the right reasons to play – exercise, friendships, pursuing a dream and of course, for the love of the sport!
Who are you playing for?
Your friends or other kids
You should be playing for yourself, for personal satisfaction, for a greater purpose if you have one or for your team who you’ve already made a commitment to.
