Athletic families can be both a blessing and a curse for young children. As kids are growing up they are likely to show an interest in certain activities that their parents introduce them to.
However, when children don’t have the same patience or passion for the things that their parents do it can sometimes cause tension in the family.
Pushing a child to do something can have the opposite effect
Many adults can recall a time in their childhood when their parents pushed them to try something with a bit too much force and it ended up having the opposite effect altogether.
Instead of embracing the sport or hobby, the child ends up resenting it, dreading when it’s time to practice.
