Coaching your kCoaching your kid: how to manage being a parent and a coach id

194 views

Published on

Coaching your own child is often hard enough for very experienced coaches to ask a friend to do it. That happens not only in the sports, but in the arts and in the sciences. There are many cases of extremely talented athletes, artists and scientists that were not trained by their parents.
For anyone looking from the outside, it is obvious that the parental example made an impact and determined the course of actions. But how many cases of resentful people we all know where a parent tried to impose his own profession or skill on his child and the result was pain and confusion? Why and how do some people succeed where others fail?
Here we asked some successful coaches to share the stories of how they managed the coach-parent double role.
