My son plays a lot of sports: soccer, hockey, baseball, swimming, karate. Flag football is on the table for Friday nights this fall. We’ve tried tennis but didn’t have time last spring. And I keep thinking he might like golf, but we don’t have five minutes for that one. With all the youth sports come the youth sports parents.
There is one father we often cross paths with — his kid always seems to be on the same team or in the same league or going to the same camp. His dad yells at him when he doesn’t score enough goals or perform up to expectations. The boy is 9-years-old. I feel sorry for him and wish his dad wouldn’t yell at him so much.
