Interesting article in the Times by Matt Dickinson: Want to tackle bad touchline behaviour? Stop parents shouting anything
When commenting on the FA Initiative 'We Only Do Positive' aimed at grassroots coaches and parents his suggestion to solve the parent problem is to go one step further than the campaign
"...I would go further and stop parents shouting anything at all at youth matches. My limit would be the odd clap and post match well done....Which is an approach they insist on in club academies...it would let children play and enjoy themselves without fear or inhibition"
What does everyone think? Would you support this approach in your sport...?
As always look forward to reading your replies
PS Whilst you are here there is lots of great content already on the site about parents shared by members. One of my fav's is the blog: Strategies for children’s coaches to help them engage more effectively... but if you just search parents in the search bar lots of helpful conversations, blogs, videos and images will come up.
