Editorial Reviews

Review

Pat Croce author of I Feel Great and 110% Speaking as a parent of athletic kids and as a former president of a team of professional kids, I find this book to be a fabulous resource for helping your kids enjoy their sporting life.

Rick Wolff Chairman, The Center For Sports Parenting Joel Fish is one of the few experts who provides real insight and compassionate advice for moms and dads. 101 Ways to Be a Terrific Sports Parent should be mandatory reading for anyone involved in youth sports.

Format: Paperback
Every parent with sports-playing kids needs this book! I saw Dr. Fish on The Today show two months ago and I really liked what he had to say about not pushing kids too hard so I got the book. Since then, I've given a copy to two parents on my daughter's soccer team and insisted that my husband (who gets carried away with our son's hockey to read it). This book has validated me in my decision not to allow my daughter to be on the travel team right now. (We have two other kids with activities so the travel has been an issue.) I like how he offers advice on how to help your child and evaluate your child's experience. This is just an overall great guide for parents whether or not there's a problem or issue.

I found this book incredibly helpful and interesting. The way Dr. Fish breaks down the chapters allowed me to cut through the clutter and find the sections that were most relevant to me. I really feel like I am now better prepared to help my son get the most out of his little league experience.

Dr. Fish's book is truly outstanding. This book has brought me and my children closer together and I would highly recommend other parents to read it. My attitude toward my children and their athletics has changed and I have a new outlook on being a positive sports parent.
