March Parenting Tip: Teach your Child to Lose Like a Champ

My boys just lost their first soccer game EVER.  When they realized the game was over and the score was 1-0, not in their favor, the looks on their faces were one of confusion. “Wait, what..we lost? I don’t understand what that means”.  All the parents looked at each other as we were standing on the sidelines…

A Conscious Approach to Youth Sports


This was a weekend full of sports in my family. My 12 year old had a basketball game and my 7 year old had a soccer game and swim meet. As Rachel Macy Stafford says, I love to watch my children play. I have grown so much from the days when my 12 year old was just getting into sports - when my ego came roaring out to the field, the court, the pool - and I wanted him to excel at all costs. Regardless of his reasons for joining a team or for playing a sport (uh, maybe because…

Adults Behaving Badly


Unfortunately, we hear on the news all the time about parents full-out losing their shit on the sidelines of their kids' sporting events.  A bad call can somehow turn supposed "adults" into the biggest meatheads on the planet.  It's both despicable and embarrassing. And I thought I'd seen some pretty horrific behavior…

Eavesdropping: One of the Few Benefits of Driving Carpool

When I'm driving around a carpool of screaming ten-year-old girls, it's sometimes hard not to wanna drive the car straight into Lake Michigan.  Seriously, these girls are capable of some severe damage to one's hearing (not to mention one's sanity).  However, one of the benefits of driving them around is that I get to…

Soccer Dads

It's soccer season for many of our kids and this takes a lot of family commitment.  Every weekend belongs partially to soccer and for some families there are weekday practices as well.  During my many hours on the field, I've been noticing and appreciating the fathers who volunteer their time and effort by coaching the kids.…

Act Like An Adult, Not Like An Idiot

If you have a kid in any kind of organized sport, then you've most likely witnessed some pretty awful sportsmanship at one time or another.  It's bad enough when it's another kid displaying the rotten behavior, but when it's an adult?  Well, that's just the lowest of the low.  And this past weekend I had the misfortune of observing THE most jack asinine…

Soccer Queen

Summer is winding down, fall is in the air, school has started…and the soccer season has commenced.

I realize my popularity may wane when I admit that I hate soccer.  I don’t get it, I didn’t play it growing up, and I don’t understand what all the fuss is all about.  But, this doesn’t stop me from…
