We’re celebrating our 40th! Our 40th episode of the show, that is. Hip-hip hooray!
If you’re a regular listener, you’ll know we’re sports parents of two kids — a 14-year-old who loves swimming and soccer, and an 11-year-old who loves soccer and basketball. They’ve got TOTALLY different personalities and are motivated by completely different things.
If you’re new to the show, just a bit of background. We started SportsParenthood almost 12 months ago because we wanted help in guiding our own sports kids.
Basically, we couldn’t always agree on the advice to give them. Now, 40 episodes on, if there’s one thing that stands out more than anything else. CHILDREN’S SPORT SHOULD BE FUN.
Today, you’ve got two of us. Firstly debating a controversial topic we don’t see eye-to-eye on. Then, we’re going to discuss the latest golden nuggets from our most recent guests.
So, strap yourselves in, starting with an article published by ABC News titled: ‘Parents banned from sidelines of Gold Coast junior AFL games’.
Are parents taking the fun factor out of sport, by being bad sports? Should we be banned from the sidelines?
