On this week’s “You’ve Got This,” I talk with Mike Smart about student athletes. Mike, a certified Leadership Parenting Coach through the John Rosemond Leadership Parenting Institute, runs Parenting Outsmarted. He also has more than 30 years’ experience as a classroom teacher and basketball coach. Mike speaks on all things parenting, and teaches with a down-to-earth, yet informative, light-hearted approach. A father to four grown children and grandfather to five, Mike still teaches part time at local junior high and high schools in the Columbus/Springfield, Ohio, area.
“I think parents also need training, such as learning to bite their tongue when their child doesn’t have a good game, when a referee doesn’t make a good call, when their child doesn’t get to play much,” Mike said. “When you don’t, you show your priorities to your child that you value sports over everything else.”
