  • Suggest to her that if she continues to undermine and contradict you that you will remove her child from the team and or ban her from the games. They ban unruly parents all the time from kid's games.

  • It happens. My dd is in her second year of softball and man there are so many parents like that. Do you guys have rules for the league at all addressing it? Our coaches all have them printed out and give them to us.

  • That is frustrating. Kudos for you for addressing it and saying something!

  • yes we do have rules, and I did hand them out and went a step further I had a parent only meeting and read them to the entire group then had them sign a sheet stating they read/I read them and they recieved a copy and all were signed, yes they can be taken outta the game, I do not want to punish the child because of their parents rudness.. I did let her know if she does this agian it will be what happens.. she called the main person on me and they told her I wouldnt have given you that much of a chance.. so we shall see if she makes it to the next game..
