The Ultimate Sports Parent
Have I ever told you that I grew up in a sports-crazed family with five kids?
30 years ago when I played football, hockey, golf, and lacrosse year round, our dad was an enthusiastic sports parent. He often impeached us to play harder and live up to our abilities. He was quick to express his frustration with refs and coaches.
My dad (and mom) was so into our games, he couldn’t restrain himself. That was both good and bad for the five of us. We liked all the attention, but often felt pressured to perform better – and better!
Now that I am a sports parent myself, I understand just how difficult it is for parents–like my dad–to figure out how best to support and help their kids in sports. And as a leading sports psychology expert, we’ve been studying this issue.
Sports parents today have many tough questions to answer:
–Should you push kids to try harder in sports when you know they have the athletic ability?
–What do you say or do after your child or teen’s crushing defeat?
–What to do if your son/daughter worries constantly about what others think of his/her sports performance?
–How do you behave on the sidelines when you are frustrated with coaches or refs?
These are hard questions, and the answers are not always obvious.
I have heard from many parents, like you, who are struggling with these issues – and many others.
Now, my sister Lisa Cohn, an award- winning parenting writer, and I have teamed up to teach you how to boost kids’ confidence and help you be a great sports parent!
We just released an innovative new program for sports parents, The Ultimate Sports Parent: A 14-Day Plan for Kids Success in Sports.
Our cutting-edge CD/Workbook program tells parents just what to say and do to improve their kids’ confidence, success and happiness in sports. It’s based on 15 years of experience working with athletes and young athletes.
As Julia Dreyer, a sports mom to two champion equestrians says:
“As parents, we supply our sports kids with all the best in equipment and coaches. But just having the right mindset using sports psychology is the least expensive and most effective investment in them.”
P.S. We recently re-launched our online mental training program with more programs and mental game tools to help you reach your potential. Grab your subscription today and get 30% off *The Ultimate Sports Parent* and other programs. Go here for a demo:

“I Can Not Thank You Enough”
“I appreciate the advice to parents as to how to help your child become more mentally resilient to bullying in sports. The specific advice and scenarios are extremely helpful for any child on a team and very helpful in guiding parents, coaches and administrators in how to deal with bullying in sports. I cannot thank you enough for your input, and I am so reassured to know that there are people like you who are writing articles and doing interviews on such timely and important matters.”

What are parents saying?
“Performed without Fear and Focus on the Process”
“The Ultimate Sports Parent Workbook Program totally changed our families approach to sports and I am so very grateful. My boys 7 and 10 are able to deal better with negative coaches, perform without fear, and focus way less results and focus better the process. One boy was amazingly able to regain composure and end the season with a positive attitude. I am on your web site all the time and am currently beginning The Confident Athlete series.”
