Over involved parents in sports

This week's news about P. Diddy being arrested for attacking his son's coach with a kettle bell due to not agreeing with his coaching methods, shows once more how well intentioned parents at times may create more problems for their kids. Especially in sports, children have to learn to fight and solve their own issues and reap the consequences for certain behaviors. Hard work and being pushed by good coaches is a foundation for success. Over involved parents can create a barrier for reaching success by not allowing the coach to do his job and stopping the children from pushing their own limits to get better.
