In your organization, do you find that your athletes are pushed too hard by their parents?
Do you find that parents demonstrate behavior and attitudes that you don’t want your club’s athletes to show?
Do you find that parent – coach conflict occurs too often and with no blueprint to resolve these matters?
Parents and Youth Sports:
All too often, in my work I observe that parents tend to live through the lives of their children.
I also observe parents who are not aware of a ‘growth mindset’ and the importance of learning through ‘failing forward’.
This tends to result some combination of parent fear, anger, or guilt, often leading parents to take out their frustrations on their child, or the coach or referee.
The fact is that parental pressure is a leading cause for children to quit sports and that around the age of 12 or 13 this is particularly true.
We also know that parenting conflict or pressure can lead to volunteer coaches quitting coaching altogether.
The fact is that parents more and more are losing authentic connection with their children, and the conflict that arises is the primary source of stress, guilt and fatigue that parents experience today.
See below the strategies and solutions that Scott can bring to your organization.
A Proactive Blueprint to Inspire, Educate and Inform Parents:
Scott leads information sessions and programs that are geared to make parents the most valuable assets in their organization.
Scott goes in depth with establishing a parent – player – coach etiquette blueprint that allows them to get on the same page with ‘competition vs fun’ philosophy, communication norms and mindset education principles to support inspired performances.
Scott explains ‘growth – fixed’ mindset, the ‘victor – victim’ mindset to parents and coaches, and offers total strategies to support both their child(ren)’s interest, level of commitment and approach to teamwork.
Scott works with coaches to ensure that they are aware of strategies to best engage with parents, to begin their season on correct footing and how to sustain this commitment throughout every twist and turn the season brings.
Scott is committed to instructing parents and coaches as to the language, attitudes and actions that are proven to support athlete confidence, skill development, teamwork and a lasting interest in their sport.

Slowly but surely, parents are losing their authority over their children.
This has less to do with their children’s age, and more to do with the fact that our children’s main influences are their peers, and their phones or devices.
The fact that we are losing authentic connection with our children, and the conflict that arises is the primary source of stress, guilt and fatigue that parents experience today.
The most important step that any parent can take to feel more positive and connected is ensure that they are the trusted authority in their children’s lives. This has everything to do with ensuring that parents are living by the attitudes and mindsets which foster integrity, honesty and self-control.
Real & Lasting Solutions:
To overcome these challenges, Scott builds accountability strategies that foster increased trust, real connection and mutual respect between parents and children.
When phones and devices no longer are a divider between parent and child, and parents learn to listen and connect with their children, we see increased personal responsibility along with stronger academic and social behavior, which all results in better harmony in the home.
To find out how you can absolutely alter the direction of your relationship with your child, listen to Scott in this video on what full parenting awareness and accountability looks like.
