"This is a great article and applies to all youth sports programs. As a parent, coach of several youth sports teams, and a fan of youth sports, this guidance will help me now and in futures years. Thank you for sharing with us. Vince DeAngelis"

"I am so impressed with this article. My son has played baseball since he was in kindergarten, actually since he was 2 yrs old. Being a female, and not having anyone to help me teach him was a challenge for me until he was in his first league. I was so excited to finally have help until what I have witnessed from the other parents. I was appauled at how they treated their children, living their childhood through their own children. I have actually seen a father hit his son because he missed the ball to get an "out". I have always put my son in the hands of the coaches, disaggreed with some, but knew they were only trying to teach them. He has learned a lot from them. These boys are playing for fun, to learn the game of America's favorite past time, and to get off video games! I beg parents to let the kids do that and let the coaches teach them that. I am deply touched that the coach took time to write this article and I am excited for this season to start."
