Passion for athletics is something shared by many children. In reality, most parents are very passionate and supportive of their children who are young athletes, always wanting to do what they believe is best. But majority of the time, the parental ego takes over when dealing with their kids and athletics. In Parental Ego and the High School and Youth Athlete, author Steve Perdue helps parents understand the way they should conduct themselves in the athletic arena with their children.
Geared for all parents from the Little League age of six up to seniors in high school, this book is especially beneficial for incoming high school students/athletes. Parental Ego and the High School and Youth Athlete gives them the perspective of a successful high school baseball program and focuses on many areas of emphasis and aspects of success. It also helps players and parents to be aware of the pressures that may lead an athlete astray such as drugs and alcohol, peer pressure, and college scholarship expectations.
Drawn from 20+ years of actual experience, Parental Ego and the High School and Youth Athlete applies to every parent and every athlete from youth league to high school in some form or another. It is not meant to criticize about parents or athletes; rather it sheds some light on what really goes on in the mind of coaches and in the many facets of the young adult lives. It is intended to help prepare both parents and student athletes for the reality of life.
