"What Coaches really wish parents knew"
by Lisa Appelo
Playing youth sports is almost a rite of passage. Nearly every family I know is running kids to practice or spending evenings at the field,
gym, or pool, at least, one season a year. Behind all of that activity
are coaches who love the kids but don't love bad sports parents who give unasked advice or worse.
can we avoid becoming one of those bad sports parents? I decided to ask
some seasoned coaches. They shared some great insights. Click here for 6 things coaches really wish parents knew...
Kindness Leads to Repentance
"Or do you show contempt for
the riches of his kindness, tolerance, and patience, not realizing that God's
kindness leads you to repentance?" Romans 2:4 (NIV)
kids disobey, we sometimes feel justified to respond with anger, guilt, or
sarcasm. It may make us feel better for a moment, but it rarely produces the
results we are hoping for. This verse explains why. We can be "right"
in our assessment of the situation and still be "wrong" in how we
respond. We are called to treat our kids with respect, even in the midst of
conflict, because this is how God responds to us in our rebellion.
seeking to punish or prove we're right, the motivation for discipline should be
to move our kids towards holiness. God allows us to learn important lessons by
giving us consequences, but He does so with kindness, tolerance and patience.
This is the kind of discipline that leads to repentance!
tolerant, and patient even in the face of disobedience or rebellion requires
your kids to focus on their mistakes, rather than your response.
