So I had this girl child that finally showd up to the game tball, and when I talked to her she just ignored me I'm the coach,so I let it go ok once I get it, however as the game goes on and I ask her to stand up and pay attention she ignores me again, then when its her turn to bat she ignores me when I tell her to run to first, so its our field turn again I put her on short stop her father was close by so I thought he could help in this I had to go help other kids when I walked back to her she then was playing almost got hit by the ball, I told her again please stand up and pay attention to the game, ok our turn to bat, I ask all the kids to get off the bench and she stays I ask her to please get down, she then gets down and as I am getting the kids seated with my parent helper she jumps on the bench again I ask her to please get down, she ignores me her father is standing there the whole time, dude do something uhm hellooooo, I take her by the hand and ask again to get down, she doesnt listen so I get her off the bench squat down to her and put my hand on her shoulders and said "sally" listen to me please I need you to stay off the bench and listen she ignores me, I raised my voice( my bad I should have not done that) finally we get all done, her mom who is a ways away gets mad and they leave, and its all my fault after I call to apologize for my voice raising she tells me oh well she had adhd and some other stuff and does that when she doesnt want to listen to you, HELLOOO!! I think I should have been informed so we smoothed it over and I asked for thier help in this I am a VOLUNTEER COACH, not a specialist ... sorry had to ventAnswer Question
Thisgoes with the coaching territory... unfortunately you are going to have to get used to it. It might also be time to take a coaching certification class! They give you advise on dealing with this kind of stuff. Besides, it's t-ball... the kids are young... this doesn't surprise me a bit. I have worked in High School athletics for 12 years... we have teens that act this way! LOL
