MyPoWriYe #59 - The boy said,


We're new to the world of childhood athletics, so sometimes I ask questions of my friends with older children .  Last weekend, my friend Debbie told me that her son works as an umpire.  He loves the game, enjoys children, works outside, and makes good money in a short time.  The only problem?  Parents.  Some teen umpires end up calling games or even quitting their jobs because of angry and out-of-control parents.

Georgia Heard, in her inspiring book Awakening the Heart, teaches us to write about our concerns. 


If you are a coach, know a coach, or have children playing sports, you might find this article by Bruce Lambin about How to Handle Parents useful.
