Maintaining Family Balance in Sports
Sports parents should always be mindful of the effects of having an accomplished athlete in the family. Often, so much attention is given to the star athlete that other kids in the family begin to detest the situation. Making the other kids trudge around to every game and tournament can create unhappiness and negative feelings. Sports parents should keep balance in their treatment of all family members and not devote all their time and attention to the star athlete. Missing games from time to time and doing things with other kids is important.
