is the virtue of making good choices. In the realm of sport, giving ownership is a necessary condition for choice. Sport parents, give your children room to control not only of their personal actions, but those of the team in order to develop the virtue of prudence.
Finally, by associating
with winning, we understand that we must teach our athletes to have a proper attitude toward winning and losing. Applaud your athlete when s/he plays with “composure”. Temperance does not mean moderating one’s desire to win but keeping the outcome in the right perspective.
While following the
approach as a sport parent, encourage virtue-development with your children throughout their sport journeys. By placing an emphasis on GROW and the cardinal virtues acquired through sport, you will maximize the enjoyment and potential of your kids as athletes and encourage them to grow as Disciples of our Church.
