Letting your kid play sports when they aren't good.
My oldest has been in baseball for years. And he does okay at practices and playing at home. But he does horrible at scrimmages and games. He seems confused, lacks confidence, and feels a lot of pressure from the other kids. The coaches are always so competitive and you can tell they don't want to play him. Last year he struck out at every single game. But he wants to keep playing. I'm happy he keeps trying, I wouldn't have made it through the first season if I was doing crappy. To make things worse for him, his younger brother rocks. All sports come so natural to him.
I'm wondering if other parents would continue letting him play-it's getting to the point where I have to stand near the dugout and make sure he's not getting pushed farther down the batting line. Would you try to talk your kid into another sport or activity if they were doing horrible and no one wanted them on their team?
