What Makes A Nightmare Sports Parent

By Steve Henson with premission from www.thepostgame.com )
 
Hundreds of college athletes were asked to think back: "What is your worst memory from playing youth and high school sports?"
 
Their overwhelming response: "The ride home from games with my parents."
 
The informal survey lasted three decades, initiated by two former longtime coaches who over time became staunch advocates for the player, for the adolescent, for the child. Bruce E. Brown and Rob Miller of Proactive Coaching LLC are devoted to helping adults avoid becoming a nightmare sports parent, speaking at colleges, high schools and youth leagues to more than a million athletes, coaches and parents in the last 12 years.
 
Those same college athletes were asked what their parents said that made them feel great, that amplified their joy during and after a ballgame.
 
Their overwhelming response: "I love to watch you play."
 
There it is, from the mouths of babes who grew up to become college and professional athletes. Whether your child is just beginning T-ball or is a travel-team soccer all-star or survived the cuts for the high school varsity, parents take heed.
