Parents' Complete Guide to Youth Sports.
Smith, Ronald E.; And Others
This book offers suggestions on what role parents should assume from the time their youngster starts youth sports through recruitment by college coaches. It offers suggestions not only to the parents of gifted athletes but also to parents who have children of average athletic ability. It provides helpful information about parenting young athletes at all levels. Athletics can be either a very enjoyable experience for parents and athletes, or a source of tension for both. Information and guidelines are provided for decision making that can help make youth sports an enriching experience for all. (JD)
