Take a Seat on the Couch:
If this episode hits home for you. If you believe you and your family struggle with this particular area, read below for next steps for you and your family:
1. Allow your child to take the lead regarding their sports life. Make them commit to an entire season once started, but don't make them commit to a sport for the entirety of their adolescents.
2. Make sure your child feels like he has worth and value outside of how he/she produces athletically.
3. Make sure your child has balance. They shouldn't be on 3 teams, have 4 different position coaches and two trainers.
