Create a spirit of togetherness in your family.
You are a special team, and don’t be afraid to use that analogy with your children, particularly if they are getting great coaching on the attributes of teamwork from some of the fantastic volunteer coaches who help teach our little athletes.
Often children forget that as a family, we’re a unit, not a collection of individuals competing with each other for scarce resources like love, attention, prestige, money or freedom.
Help them make the connection between what they are learning in sport and your family “team”.
“There can only be one state of mind as you approach any profound test; total concentration, a spirit of togetherness, and strength.”
