Kids in soccer uniforms with their arms around each other.





What is the best thing you can do for your child who wants to be a soccer player?  Do you need to buy him or her the best equipment and gear, and hire a private soccer coach on your off-practice days?  Will having your child jog 3 miles a day help him to be a star?

The best thing you can do for your child is encourage, encourage, encourage.

Show an interest in your child and what he/she enjoys, whether he/she made the goal or not, whether his/her team won or not. Your approval of your child and pride in him or her should be completely separated from his performance on the team.
