Guidelines for Parents of Children in Sports

On April 19, 2021, a letter that appeared in the Dear Abby column cited recommendations published by The Physician and Sportsmedicine in 120218.

  1. Make sure your children know that--win or lose--you love them and are not disappointed with their performance.
  2. Be realistic about your child's physical ability.
  3. Help your child set realistic goals.
  4. Emphasize improved performance, not winning. Positively reinforce improved skills.
  5. Don't relive your own athletic past through your child.
  6. Provide a safe environment for training and competition. This includes proper training methods and use of equipment.
  7. Control your own emotions at games and events. Don't yell at other players, coaches, or officials.
  8. Be a cheerleader for your child and the other children on the team.
  9. Respect your child's coaches. Communicate openly with them. If you disagree with their approach, discuss it with them.
  10. Be a positive role model. Enjoy sports yourself. Set your own goals. Live a healthy lifestyle.
