As a swim parent, I learned a few things through years of volunteering, car pooling and washing endless loads of towels. Here are six lessons I’ve learned.
“Although we want to be supportive and involved, there should be a limit to our involvement if we are negatively impacting our kids.”
We’ve all heard that swimmers swim, parents parent and coaches coach, but what do these roles entail?
“When will all we lose be too much to bear?”
Many swimmers end up coughing during practice. Is it an allergy to chlorine, undiagnosed asthma, or something else?
With all of the changes to swimming this year, including some athletes being forced to train on their own, how can we help revitalize our kid’s motivation?
As parents, we can learn from psychologists and doctors on how we can help our children with anxiety.
“We are being challenged now in ways we might have never imagined. But there are lessons to be learned and victories to be realized.”
