Being the coach of your son’s team is a dream of many a dad. It can be a nightmare without the proper expectations.
When his son’s soccer career ended, this dad discovered new obstacles they could navigate through a running event.
My patience with his slow recovery from this injury is waning. My sympathy is quickly turning into disappointment at his lack of grit.
My son would often return from youth soccer practices bewildered and sad. His teammates chastised him for making mistakes. The coach would appear right before the practice and disappear immediately after. I was livid.
Soccer parents get caught up in the excitement of a championship … and take it their frustrations on the winning team’s players.
You wouldn’t think it to look at them, but our favorite pro athletes and toddlers are similar … like their sense of entitlement.
