I think it’s funny that only the women don’t agree with the dad!! As a dad and coach I have to agree with the dad! This is more then just teaching of sports. It’s teaching your son about life in general. Work hard and earn your spot. You have to give effort in everything you do rather if it’s in Sports, school or in your job. Kids have plenty of time to have fun and joke around with friends. Practice is 1-2 hours once or twice a week! My son is 12 now and he loves the game of baseball. Works hard plays hard. He does great in school gets upset when he brings home a 93!! Gets upset when he strikes out! And I know that he’s going to work hard and do better on his next paper or his next at bat. Why because when he was younger we pushed him to want to succeed in anything he does and he has to work hard to get there! Now it’s to the point where I don’t even have to say anything! He looks at me and I give him that dad look!! You guys no what I’m talking about! Sorry for the long message this just really hit home for me!
As a parent of a travel ball kid and wife of coach I don’t have a problem with most of this. Sorry. Practice like you play. We as an entire family sacrifice a lot of time and money for him to play the travel sports he wants to play! Hella no way I’m in if he’s not taking it seriously. And our first born doesn’t want to play in travel sports but enjoys rec/community ball and making new friends. We are ok if not taken as seriously.Also as coach’s wife, children fooling around during coach’s VOLUNTEERED time is not really acceptable. Many times we must pay for practice space for a limited amount of time. If the kids want to meet up and play tag we can go to the local playground for free.Now this parent could’ve been more respectful I suppose but who’s to say the kid was being respectful of the coach’s time and time of his teammates?
As a parent, we walk a fine line between being an encourager and a killer of dreams. You must know your child and how to push them to do better but not destroy their confidence and passion. I am honest enough to admit that I do not have it all figured out..
And it’s not gonna be fun when they don’t play [benched]and therefore suck cause the parent just said ok Timmy do what you want rainbows and butterflies 🤷🏻♂️ shit some of this video is needed
Excuse me....this Dad should have his “little talk” secretly recorded and played back while he is looking in a mirror. Too many parents are reliving their “childhood dreams” and not figuring out the sons’ and daughters’ dreams. Had a wise 10 year old grandson tell me, “ you know grandma too many parents think by pushing their kids in sports, trophy’s and scholarship are in their future. Not going to happen....too many kids and there is always someone better.” A good parent would stress doing your best and have fun.
My guess is this dad signed his child up on the cities 40th travel team thinking it will magically make him more interested and better. Therefore this creates pressure for the child to produce because all the time and money the parents have paid. I am not against having higher level teams but sometimes the parents need to re-evaluate their child’s abilities and wants before putting johnnie on the towns 40th travel team.
Kids need to be held accountable. You want to play you need to work hard and earn it. This is why parents think every kid should get a participation trophy. You think when they grow up their boss will be ok with mediocre performance and poor work ethics? Nope they will be fired and sent back home to Moma.
“There’s no crying is baseball!” Okay... but seriously this is needed. Your kid is taking up a spot for someone else’s who really does want to play and work hard. All kids deserve to play if they WANT to play. If they suck who cares. They want to be there they will work hard and try. If they are grass pickers , get off the Feild your living your daddy’s dream kid. This talk needs to happen., maybe it’s not what you say but how you say it?
We need to stop being soft on these kids !kids Quit because there aloud to ,their kids
The kid is like 6 years old. Wtf is this really about dad? 🤔 I thought you signed me up so I could play a game and make new friends.
" in the real world" Fuck the parent He couldn't be good at baseball and certainly his kid won't be either with such support!
Dad sucks.... living through his kid. Dads like this never were successful athletes. Its about progression and development
Parents need to quit making there kids play the sport it's up to the kid period.....
Bot o boy is this telling. Patents probably dont even k ow they are doing this. Self reflection
My son always gets advise from us and has learned to take it! He is 11
Parents be like that for real? I thought it be more realistic. "What are you doing out there! This is not girls scouts! If you dont want to play I can take you out if you not trying to be serious!" Blah blah.
Parents need to look at themselves at what they are doing to their child by critiquing every little thing that the parents should do in sports. They are not being fair to the child. Most children are forced to play because that is what the parent wants not the child. A lot of parents are trying to relive their childhood through their parents is the whole problem. Let the children have fun while they are trying to learn. They will enjoy the sport more and won’t get discouraged. They are only a child once and there is no scouts out looking at children. It is no wander the children don’t wNt to play any sports when they get older, they are tired of being told that they aren’t doing a good enough and the parents wasted all their time running with them to practice. If a parent acts like that towards the child , a good way to lose respect from the child.parents if it is so important to you about playing these games, why do;’t you go out and play the sport. I can’t blame the child when the parent acts like this. We raised four boys and we never went through this ridiculous stuff of criticism with the boys. Very uncalled for. Let them have fun . Sports are good for children, but they don’t don’t need all the Criticism to be a good player. When a coach thinks a child should get a hit all the time is wrong, or if a coach benches a child for a game just because he strikes out, is not a coach. That is not teaching anything to a child but discouragement , very uncalled for. No one is perfect. Coaches and parents get over it and let the kids have fun in the process Thank you
