Should parents stop coming to their kids’ games?

It’s a wild thought. But best-selling author Daniel Pink thinks that’s just what we should do. CNN commentator Mel Robbins agrees…to a point. Her recent article on CNN.com is full of great advice for parents who feel their involvement and, essentially, manipulation of everything their kids do is a good thing. And this reminds us of an article we wrote earlier this year on pretty much the same topic. The bottom line is that kids need to be able to handle things on their own in order to succeed in the real world. And nowhere is our parental involvement so over-the-top as in our kids’ sports. If you’ve got a youngster playing sports take a few minutes to read these articles. It might be the best thing you ever do for your children.
