Therefore, it is vital that parents support the sporting choices of their children, no matter how good or bad they are – and even if it means a few extra petrol miles taking them to training and matches…and EVERYTHING else that they desire to partake in!
YOU WILL BE TIRED – but it will be worth it…..
Practical support is just as important as the emotional, cheerleading type of support your children need. They may not realize how important this practical support is, but if you withdrew it, they would soon know about it and realise they could not do it on their own. Fetching and taking them places is the main way of supporting them – and yes, it may be that they take this for granted.
Other practical support can include the old bugbear of money – few sports are free to compete in, ( you will have to really SEARCH FOR THOSE )……so you may have to face up to the fact that your child’s sports activities will cost you money, be it for equipment, coaching or kit.
Nontheless, support your kids!!!
