It is so, so hard to raise morally upright children. You as a parent spend so much time teaching your children to act and speak virtuously that it can be maddening to see your hard work undermined by others. Have you ever had an experience where a sports coach you thought you could trust to share in developing your child’s code of honor instead ended up degrading it? What do you do about it? How do you handle that aggravating, delicate situation? We here at City of Cheer GEMS have put together two brief lists of tips. One is for parents who need, unfortunately, to navigate that aggravating, delicate situation and the other is to help coaches avoid creating a problem.
