Link to this article was in last week's Volume 35:

Coddling kids is killing sports

There are three points to this column that I’m trying to get across. 

1.) Be realistic about your child’s ability and adjust your expectations.

2.) Be firm with your child about their actions.

3.) Don’t blame the coach. 

If you believe your child is the best, even when they aren’t, if you pamper your child when they don’t get their way, and/or you constantly place blame on coaches, you are only setting them up for failure.
