My son is grown now, but I'll never forget his very first L/L game. He did something wrong and the lady next to me said something nasty about him. Now I'm kind of shy so I kept my mouth shut. I then had to work with her in the consssion stand , with her. I was nice, but not real friendly. Then he got better, but I still remained quiet. One day they were all yelling how good he was, and she was near me, and I was able then to look at her and say very quiety and proud; " That's my son" their yelling about. I felt so good about getting my point across, and I didn't cause any future problems with a long standing future L/L Mother of another boy. It goes to show you, you never know WHO is within ear shot of your conversation.

My boys do and no, I haven't heard any remarks from parents (yet.) If someone (an adult) were to make a remark about my kid, in my presence, I won't be quiet about it. It's a game. Some adults take things too seriously.

My son played for the first time this summer and I heard plenty or rude remarks from parents about certain kids and their playing abilities. Luckily, they were never about MY child or else I would have spoken up and told them off.
