A campaign released by a Canadian organisation, True Sport looks at the impact that parents have on their kids playing sport. They ask parents to think about that ride home after the game with their child, they ask parents to focus on ‘that moment’ that you and your child are together alone in the car. Everything you say to them will have a positive or negative impact on their attitude towards sport. According to the organisation in Canada, 70% of kids quit sports before high school. How we talk to our kids about sports is how we keep our kids in sports.
One dad commented after watching the video, “This makes me so sad. I was this dad and it took me realizing the negative impact I was causing to stop. I actually thought I was helping my kids grow up and learn lessons. Thank you for this video and sharing an important message”.
