Don't Let Your Athlete Skip the Struggle

Recommended Posts

FTA:

"If you’re tempted to jump into your child’s struggle and try to fix it, let these things hold you back:

  • Your child needs to learn how to problem-solve without your constant help. This is a skill he must develop because he will need it a lot as an adult.
  • Your child needs to learn how to resolve conflict with others. If you keep fixing things for him, he won’t have a chance to learn this.
  • Your child needs to learn persistence. He will need it as a spouse, parent, and employee/employer. You do not want to raise a kick who tucks his tail and runs at the first sign of a struggle."
