Watching US Youth Soccer tourny near Dayton, Ohio. Disturbing to be on the sidelines hearing a coach tell his young players how slow and stupid they are. It makes me wonder if this was how he was spoken to, thus becoming the language he grew to speak that tears down his players. Perhaps never receiving positive affirmation or encouraging words to learn how to properly coach a team, or even a single child.
No matter what, believe the best in your kids and players. Build them up, but never tear them down.
