Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Former Kansas City Royal Jim Sundberg and wife Janet offer sensible and sensitive advice to parents of young athletes. The Sundbergs provide a few shocking anecdotes about hyper-competitive parents whose own insecurities come to rule their children's athletic participation. Positive parents, the Sundbergs counter, allow their kids to participate in sports just for fun, cheer them on without performance expectations, console them without reproach and are always ready to "listen, listen, listen." A child's sport should never dominate family life. "Your family is the team that should always come first," they write. The book contains a few vague references to God but is primarily a solid parenting book without religious preoccupations. (Mar.)
