In today’s climate, during the Coronavirus pandemic this quality is becoming more and more valuable to individuals, teams and organisations.
In this short solo episode, I answer a popular question that we get asked by sporting parents – how do I help my children deal with strong emotions?
When playing sport, children’s lives are littered with challenges and difficulties including; being dropped from squads or teams, losing form or skills, being injured and the recovery period, selection bias, being bullied, being played out of position, and dealing with making mistakes and losing, as well as many more. I go on to share 7 suggestions for parents that you may find helpful.
- Think about what you want to say.
- Find a quiet moment.
- Find out what they know.
- Share your feelings with your child.
- Tell the truth.
- Say “I don’t know.”
- Take good care of yourself
