When your child is the worst player on the team

I think it's really important, whether we are good or not good at something, is that if we are finding meaning, if we're finding enjoyment, if we're finding a way to find out who we are and a sport happens to be that, it's fine. Support the child to stay with it. However, if the child is miserable. They are not good and they are miserable at it. It's probably not a great fit. Maybe there's a different sport, maybe there's a different activity. If a child is not good at a sport, but they love it support them. It's a great place to learn about who you are, engaging in other people. There are many life lessons. In addition, we have the opportunity to be around great coaches.
