Do you get verbal in the stands at your child or teen's sporting events?

Some parents really yell and get involved in the sporting event while others quietly watch clapping from time to time. Which one are you?

  • I'm always very verbally supportive...everyone in the stands knows who my son is, but I don't gt involved with the arguments about whether a bad call was made or not. I may have my opinion but I keep it to myself, I believe when you make an umpire mad all they do is take it out on the children.(yes I'm a baseball mom)

  • The quite one. We had a 3 year old dad at soccer game yelling and coming onto the field last year. He was super intense.

  • I cheer, but I'm not obnoxious about it. My son plays football and I'm always yelling and cheering for him and his whole team. But I do appreciate a good play or tackle and will acknowledge the other team's players when they make a one.
