Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0982131712, Perfect Paperback)

Youth sports can be a wonderful shared experience between parent and athlete. But, too often a win-at-all-cost mentality creates stress, tension, and frustration for both parent and child. Positive Sports Parenting by Jim Thompson provides insightful and sensible advice on how parents can help children get the most from sports. In a clear, inviting voice, Thompson reminds parents to worry less about winning and focus on the big picture the endless procession of teachable moments and life lessons that their children can draw from sports. Packed with accessible ideas and easy-to-use tools, Positive Sports Parenting shows parents practical ways to create lasting, positive memories with their child through sports, use sports to teach and reinforce vital character traits, work effectively with coaches, support their child on the sidelines so he/she can perform at his/her best, and deal effectively with common dilemmas faced by sports parents.
