Overview

Approximately 75 percent of children who play organized sports quit by age 13. While there is no definitive answer about why, many researchers suggest that it is because of pressure from parents. One referee always likes to say that he equates kid’s soccer to a musical recital. Parents don’t yell instructions to their seven-year old when they are singing or playing the piano. They are not jumping up from their seats when the proper chord is struck, yelling, “Great job, Jimmy!” or “Big kick on the next chord!” Yet, they feel it is OK to do so on the soccer field. Why?

A humorous take on the topic.
