This week a teaching friend of mine posted an article that I thought was interesting about sports titled, What Makes a Nightmare Sports Parent – And What Makes a Great One. I think it is an important read for not only sports parents, but also for the parents who have children that perform in the arts. One suggestion that I believe is missing for the article is for parents to sit down and actually write out why you want your child to be part of a team and then as a parent act accordingly. Do you want your child to be the top performer? Do you want the team to win at any cost? Do you want your child to learn the intangible skills of being a team player and of overcoming obstacles? These are three very different goals. It is something to ponder.
The Leopard's Tale is our main medium to keep our families informed on such things as the day to day happenings on campus, after school activities, summaries of any arts and sports events, helpful resources, and important dates and reminders.
