Making friends with your fellow sideline parents doesn’t matter until it does – when on-field tragedy strikes a youth soccer player.
Being the coach of your son’s team is a dream of many a dad. It can be a nightmare without the proper expectations.
Before coaching your child and his teams, consider time commitment, your knowledge of the sport … and dealing with other parents.
I’m an expert in every sport. Which is really great because I have to tell my kid what to do when the ball does something.
Coaches and parents have a partnership but sometimes moms and dads forget the role they play in making it a successful one.
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.
