Parents, Stay Positive at Game Time

Maintaining your inner balance during a sports event can sometimes be taxing. Emotions can get out of hand, especially when it’s your child’s team.  You certainly want to show your support but you definitely want to keep your responses positive and supportive of the entire team, and of course the sport.  But that doesn’t always happen and some parents cross the line.  Janis Meredith shares some tips on how keep yourself above the parental sports fray:

  • Tune off the negative comments
  • Turn up your positivity to squelch out the unpleasant commentaries
