Sports parents, take heed. The benefit of youth sports is learning to work through adversity, adopting the discipline of deliberate practice, and the willingness to work as part of a team. If they get a scholarship or pro contract along the way, that is a plus. But, you personally will not have any influence on that part.

Business managers, think through how this might apply to you and your employees as well…

 

If your entire focus is trying to turn your child into a world-class professional athlete, you run the risk of developing a person with second-rate social and life skills.
