Teach Before You Criticize

One of the issues I have, especially with my own kids, is my expectations are sometimes bigger than the time that I have put in teaching and repping.

Some of the biggest frustrations that I have as a dad and coaches when I expect them to be able to do something right away or even worse when I haven't even taught or explained it.

It is important to teach and practice. It sounds so simple, but sometimes we need to be reminded of the simple things.

And don't forget the practice part. Coaches spend hours teaching certain skills and concepts. It takes time to learn something new. Don't think that we can just tell them something and that they will be able to automatically implement it in the game. Sometimes they can, but a lot of times, it just takes reps and reps to master something.R

Repetition is the father of learning. Remember the 10,000 rule. Keep teaching.
