Please Don’t Be ‘That Dad’!

Peter Schwartz, sports anchor, shared his thoughts on USA Football’s blog on what kind of dad he wants to be for his kids when they are on the field. Peter’s son made a comment about a dad with famous athletic sons that got him thinking about his own behavior when he watches his children play.  Peter shares his own misgivings about behavior that he’s not proud about and also contributes some suggestions on how to be involved with supporting your children and not crossing the line.

“My advice to other dads is to enjoy every minute of it because it goes by very fast. Let your kids have fun and be supportive, because playing sports is a very important part of life. Take a moment to look around and see how other parents are acting. If there’s something you don’t like, make a mental note of it so you can avoid doing the same thing in the future.”
