SOMETHING TO PONDER
Here are some thoughts for you to think about as you sit in the stands and cheer your sons/daughters on week after week. Hockey, like life mirrors other sports that teach many skills, the game is also full of opportunities to teach our kids that they are "capable". There are so many moments that can educate them for their future life outside of the rink. So often, we see kids emotions running on supercharge after a tough loss or something that they or you as parents may not see as fair. All that you want to do at that moment is "make it better" - Here is something to think about the next time you are faced with this learning opportunity. SIMPLY - LET HIM/HER LOSE - Everybody isn't always a winner. Even if you want to say " You're a winner because you tried", DON'T. He doesn't feel like a winner, he feels sad and disappointed, and that's a good thing because sometimes life will make him feel that way too. No matter how hard ( as parents) we try to make it better and not seem so bad for them, it is just that. These kids are capable of dealing with these feelings effectively if we all just allow them too. This practice will do him/her more good later in life when he loses again, and again, and again and yes - yet again.
Instead make sure he understands that sometimes you win and sometimes you lose but that DOESN'T MEAN YOU EVER GIVE UP. Therein lies the character of a true winner. ~ Author Unknown
