Chellsie on parenting gymnasts

Chellsie Memmel is soon to be a Mom. I think she’ll be a great one. :-)

Chellsie:

I first want to thank the parents who put their kids in our great sport! Without parents, we wouldn’t be here or have any of the amazing opportunities that we do. With that said, I believe there should be boundaries in parental involvement in sports.

MemmelsDo watch practices….but only once and a while. If you just can’t stay away, don’t bring up things that happened or any trouble they may have had in practice that day. Let your child talk to you. If they want to vent, listen. If they would rather leave their bad day behind, let them. If they had a great day and are super pumped to tell you about it, be excited and happy about it.

Don’t set your own goals for them…

Tumbl Talk – Do’s and Don’ts of Parent Participation by Chellsie Memmel

That’s the Tumbl Trak blog. If at Congress Pitsburg, be sure to stop by and say hi to everyone at the Tumbl Trak both. I’m going to miss the P&G Championships. I’m presenting at the Gymnastics B.C. Congress instead this year.
