You’d think there’s nothing more important than teaching our kids to uphold the highest standards of sportsmanship and sense of fair play.
Well actually there is!
It’s even more important for us parents to ‘walk the talk’ and demonstrate those values and behaviours to them. Unconditionally!
Remember, our children see, hear and feel everything – they look up to us and model their behaviour and attitude on ours.
Sure it’s not always easy! Sport can be frustrating at the best of times!
But in those occasional moments when letting our emotions get the better of us – let’s take a deep breath and remind ourselves – they are our kids – just out there playing a game with their mates.
