football player-parents are watching them, often harder and harder as their children. Nevertheless, parents and children are not allowed to lose, in spite of the success of pressure, the fun of the game from the eyes.
County – It was a scene that happens all too often in football, not only in children's football. The goalkeeper drops the Ball a bit stupid by the legs to slip, it can happen. Goal. It has been raining, the Ball is slippery as a toad. Now, you could expect the players to console the unfortunate ravens, Pat him on the shoulder, raise him up would. A is but ran to the stairs, tears of anger in the eyes, has raged, his goalkeeper knocked over, behaved like once Axel Schulz in the Boxing ring. The small Keeper picked himself up, then fell crying into the Grass. And his teammate who was so freaked out, have you dragged from the square.
It is a sad story, she tells of the excesses on the children's football. But do not tell too much to ambitious adult, she tells of a completely excessive performance pressure that will be exposed to a ten-year-old?
It was not a game, it was a crucial. Maybe it was not the children don't realize that, obviously, but to some parents, some caregivers, who have secretly thought about the beautiful most photos in the local newspaper. And the children "had really made hot", as they say in the jargon. So much So that one then could not cope with, that is a blunder of his Keepers cost the victory.
" Treat your fellow players and sporting opponents always how you yourself would like to be treated, with Fairness and respect ."
Guido Buchwald, world champion in 1990, and mercury CUP Ambassador
What would the parents do? The children say, you will just have to play just fun, even if you lose? It is often difficult to find the Balance between success think and the needs of children. Narrow is the ridge on which parents and caregivers move is. Of course, the Kids should have first and foremost enjoyment of the Sport, the joy of movement, on the common game. But you don't have even more joy, if a bit of success?
issues like this have plagued us on this cloudy afternoon, when the malefactor hid crying in the rain coat of his father. Get rid I'd the, some called, to play Boxing or Golf, but please not engage in team sports. As the penalty catalogue was getting harder, the managers protectively in front of the boy, and asked not to dramatize the thing, but please in such a way.
The Bub's by the way, remained in the club, two weeks later, he appeared again, has praised his goalkeeper, delighted with goals and victories. He has lost again, but he had coped. Brave as man is a real sport.
What had happened in the meantime ... team internally? We don't know it. Perhaps the Trainer for the parents together, the goals are redefined, maybe you have pulled together the Lessons from the bitter incident. The children you saw had forgiven the boys, even the goalkeeper. The team, the Sport, have him captured again. He has not been expelled because of the Ausrasters. An important experience.
it has not taught that the Sport is primarily from Victories and Successes. But to offer much more: a sense of security, companionship and friendship, can survive even in such critical situations.
