I got this great article from a friend of mine. It is so hard being a parent. When your child plays sports it is hard to be encouraging without going overboard. Sports are very competetive and we think we are doing the right thing pushing them, but this article does a great job of looking at the other side. Especially the other side from your child's point of view. We forget that we understand the concept of competition while to the younger, more undeveloped brain it means something totally different. We feel like we are doing them a disservice if they aren't prepared to compete for time on a high school team or for a scholarship, but do we push them at a larger cost?
