What do you think of parents as coaches?
Asked at Massachusetts Street on November 19, 2006
“I think sometimes the parents are a little too demanding of their children. Sports are supposed to be fun. As long as there’s not too much pressure, it’s fine.”
“I think it’s fine. As long as they’re treating their son or daughter the same as the other kids without any favoritism.”
“I don’t see a problem with it. When your parent is the coach, they are harder on you than the rest of the team.”
“It’s a bad idea. They play favorites and get way too into it.”
