Everyone has seen and heard ‘that’ parent. The one who always goes out of their way to berate their child about a mistake he or she makes in a junior sport game. Being overly pushy towards a child can give them bad feelings about sport and exercise as a whole. The exercise routines formed as young children shape your health as you grow into an adult. If these moments are connected with negative feelings and anxiety, it can lead to an unhealthy adulthood with little exercise compared to the population average. So always remember, they are children, they want to have fun and not be belittled. If you want to shout abuse and see perfect skills on a sport field, go see the pro’s live. Let your children find their feet and have positive experiences with exercise.
