How to be a good sport parent
|Duration||17 Minutes 16 Seconds|
|Description||“Parents need to see sports as the vehicle to equip our kids with life skills.” How do we find the balance to be a good parent, and helping our kids succeed in sports? This podcast episode featuring Gordon MacLelland will help provide tips on how to be a good sport parent, with our children in sports activities to help them learn life skills and gain experiences, rather than winning in the sport itself. Gordon MacLelland, a former teacher and a coach to all age levels from 7 years to adults, set up Working with Parenting in Sport, to support organizations, parents and coaches in working together to provide children with the best possible sporting experiences. He is the author of two books, “Great Sports Parenting - pocket guide for parents of children in sport” and “Engage - a coach’s guide to building positive relationships with parents”.|
