  • Don’t pressure children — promote sportsmanship

    Most adults know winning a competition isn’t necessarily a prerequisite for future success in life.
    Sometimes, however, we can get caught up in the moment and put too much pressure on our children to win at whatever they do, whether it is at school or on the athletic field.
