Sports parenting is no walk in the park (pun intended). You invest so much time, energy, and effort into your kid's sports. You do everything humanly possible to make sure they have what they need to be successful in their chosen sport. So when they don't make the team, it can be devastating for both kids and parents alike. You know how hard your kids worked, and how badly they wanted it. It's a tough blow on all.
This can be a sensitive time in a kid's life, and whether it's a team they didn't make or a part they didn't get in the school play, not getting chosen is bound to occur at one point or another in your child's life. As sports parents it's important that we are equipped with the know-how of what to do when the inevitable happens, your kid doesn't make the team.
By keeping a few points in mind, you and your kids can get through this rough patch gracefully, and maybe even with a different outlook!
