Anyone read this? I'm not quite all the way through it yet, but I've found myself rereading multiple passages.

I'm already more conscious of the way I talk to DS... balancing responsibility with self-esteem messages.

A sense of entitlement is, I think, the root of much ill in society, and in individuals. Sounds like an interesting read; but I should probably wait a few more months to read it, having recently gone through the divorce process, where entitlement reigns supreme.

Just got it. Can't wait to read it. I have encountered many, many scary parents in different roles I've held with sports organizations, and their so-called "advocacy" for their children, and I think this book will be both an eye-opener and confirmation of my theories.

If it is, I may just ship some books out anonymously to my "favorite" parents.

Speaking of horror-story sports parents, our local soccer league had a rule that ANY spectator heckling a player or umpire/ref was subject to immediate and permanent removal.

I wholeheartedly supported that rule.

Me too Cat. Negativity is contagious. If one parent does it, it will soon spread to others.

I also like the concept of "If you don't have anything positive to say, keep quiet."
