This seperate element should be a consideration
For some internal dna reason there are times the parent/child relationship gets strong armed by coachy/instructor parents
who they themselves do not know a healthy boundary between instructing vs cheering.
And this gem of a topic
CAN/DOES impact youth.
Its okay to be a parent instructor, of course parents should be the best life coach they can be!!!!
However think ahead, plan ahead, and pay attention big time that in this situation generally the parent instructing is on their own learning curve
(how to teach sports)
much the same as the child is
learning how to play them.
Yes, that parent-teacher learning curve! With my dd on here, she has been my poor guinea pig, but we have somehow gotten this far relatively unscathed, both of us learning a ton! She has had so much patience with me lol.
I have a 9 yo dd that I have waited on, but is now requesting to learn, but none have shown the desire as my ds. I'll prob just continue as is, and be sure poor cues (as I currently understand 'em) are not introduced, qs eFastball mentioned.
But 1st a $400 bat of course..
