with Greg Dale, Ph.D., Mental Training Coach, Duke University
Greg Dale's message to parents of athletes is to work proactively, in a positive manner, to facilitate your athlete's ability to thrive in the athletic experience. In this excellent instructional DVD, Dale looks at the influence a parent can have on an athlete's experience in sports. He first looks at why kids choose to participate in athletics, why kids quit, how parents can impact the level of fun in the experience, and how certain behaviors can detract from a positive experience. Dale then discusses the importance of appropriate parent-parent, parent-coach, and parent-athlete relationships and how they can contribute to a positive experience for the athlete. This highly informative DVD is a "must-see" for all parents.
