Description

It Can Be More Than Just a Game.
With the stresses our culture is experiencing today, it's more important than ever to find ways for families to come together as a strong unit. Competitive youth sports offer families ideal opportunities to support our kids, instill character, and teach lessons that will serve our children both now and in the future-all in a fun and natural setting. Unfortunately, many of us don't take full advantage of these sports experiences, of because we don't know how to begin.

Drawing from a rich background in sports, parenting, and family development, World Series hero Jim Sundberg and his wife, Janet, teach that the sports experience can provide unique opportunities for kids to deal with emotions and develop the skills necessary for healthy, life-enhancing interactions with others. But for this to happen, moms and dads need a practical plan.

The Sundbergs will help you build that plan by showing you How to Win at Sports Parenting.  Discover how to help your children...
--Enjoy to the fullest the sports they play
--Learn valuable sports-to-life lessons
--Deal with game day emotions in a healthy manner
--Develop crucial skills they will use the rest of their lives

From the Trade Paperback edition.

Publishers Weekly Review

Apr 17, 2000 – Former Kansas City Royal Jim Sundberg and wife Janet offer sensible and sensitive advice to parents of young athletes. The Sundbergs provide a few shocking anecdotes about hyper-competitive parents whose own insecurities come to rule their children's athletic participation. Positive parents, the Sundbergs counter, allow their kids to participate in sports just for fun, cheer them on without performance expectations, console them without reproach and are always ready to "listen, listen, listen." A child's sport should never dominate family life. "Your family is the team that should always come first," they write. The book contains a few vague references to God but is primarily a solid parenting book without religious preoccupations.
