Parenting an Athlete
The role that parents play in the development of their children is crucial, especially when it comes to athletics. While many parents today are aware of the need to provide their child with the best opportunities to succeed and excel in sports, many are completely unaware of the tremendous impact they have on their child's attitude and self-esteem. Annette Reiter's motivational book,Parenting an Athlete,looks at all angles of raising a sports-minded son or daughter, with the goal of guiding parents so that they positively and encouragingly interact—not interfere—with their child athlete. Having lived all sides of the 'parenting and sports' issue, Annette writes from an informed perspective of not only a coach dealing with parental roles but also as a proud and frustrated parent on the sidelines. 'A must-read for parents, especially those whose student-athlete is approaching high school. Parents need to realize the profound influence they have on their child's attitude, not only in athletics, but also in life.' - Chris Hill, head basketball coach, Morrestown High School, and former college basketball player
