Why Parents Need to Always Respect Other Players

Support every single child and encourage them to do better. Your kids will follow the example you set.

One of the most important lessons that a parent can teach a child is to respect others. Not everybody on a team gets along and can be friends, but the number one thing that any person must have for another person is respect. Parents should be a leading example of this at all times.

Not every child on a football team, or really any youth sports team, is a superstar. Not every player can throw the ball accurately, run fifty yards for a touchdown, snap the ball cleanly or be a shutdown cornerback. In fact, it takes a lot for some children to even have the courage to step on the field. So, there are inevitably going to be situations where children make mistakes on the field.
