Thinking Out Loud ~ 4 simple short tips on being a great swim parent

  1. Take time to educate yourself about responsible sports parenting, there are wonderful resources out on the internet to guide you through the process.
    1. NFHS Free Sports Parent Course
    2. The 9 rules of a positive sports parent
    3. Positive Sports Parent Blog
  1. Learn the thirteen words that are the most impactful to your child “I love to watch you swim, and I am so proud of you!”
  2. Enjoy the carpool ride and let the kids steer the conversation.  You will learn so much more about them, rather than interview them about practice.

 .               Toxicity in the car ride home

  1. Be a good sport as a parent.  By modeling behaviors that fall in line with sportsmanship as a parent, your children will reflect these values.
