Keys for Kids

Parent Minute

I wish that coach knew what they were doing.

Posted on 7/1/2020 by Greg Yoder

If you’re as competitive as I am, you’re not real comfortable watching most athletic events. You want to be out there. And when it comes to our kids, we want our kids to play, be involved, enjoy the game, and win. When our kids are on a team and they’re losing, well, sometimes it’s easy to blame the coach, and when they’re volunteering, well, that’s uncalled for. Do everyone a favor would you? Let. Them. Coach. And, don’t complain about it. I’ve been on both sides. I've been the coach and the bad parent. There’s nothing worse than a parent telling a coach what to do. You’re being a poor example to your child, and you’re not being a good witness to the coach. Kindness and humility are key.

Suggested Reading: Proverbs 17:27-28
