The ride home from a sport is simple.
You just have to remember to say six words.
I love to watch you play.
– Inspired by the video “The ride home”
70% of kids quit sports before high school because it just isn’t fun anymore. That’s a staggering number. Have you ever (even though you meant well) focused on the negative things from a game or practice on the ride home from your child’s sport? Focusing on a certain six words instead can make a world of difference.
