LEAR TO ENJOY THE GAME....
Can you imagine how you would feel if you were trying to do something very difficult, that required constant deep thought and awareness, and you were being distracted by people calling out to you, screaming at you, telling you that you were not doing your work correctly? It would be a real challenge to get better at your work, to improve and learn. We need to have perspective on the sidelines and understand that the referees on the fields are novice referees, seeking to learn and improve just as our children playing are seeking to do.
Maybe if we give referees a break from our barrage of commentary:
* They will be better able to learn and grow and develop.
* They will find more enjoyment in the work they do and not quit. (Our referee shortage is a real problem.)
* We will realize that the game is just that – a game.
Maybe if we give ourselves a break from our barrage of commentary we will realize how enjoyable it is to watch our child and their teammates and opponents compete and find joy on the field.
PLEASE LET US KNOW WHAT YOU AS A PARENT WOULD LIKE TO SEE ON THIS TAB.
