Okay, I'm going to be a bad sports mother! I can tell this is going to be a struggle for me! I'd love some advice how to deal with: 1) when I think the coach is unfair to my child 2) when my kids don't do as well as I know they can do and we're both frustrated To give you background, Travis is in all-stars for baseball. In the regular season he had a coach pitching to him at his level and he smashed the ball every single time. In all stars the kids have to pitch and he has not hit one fair ball. I'm trying to encourage him, but I'm frustrated with him! Any good coping strategies? I have lots more years of this to deal with it! I guess we're just starting to get into competetive play and I don't want to be the overbearing parent to the coach or my own child!!
