Great Tip To Help Keep Your Mouth Shut At Kids Games
Parents, quite literally, can be the WORST spectators at sporting events for kids. With Spring here, this means soccer game, lacrosse games, baseball games, track meets and more. Where there is a kid playing sports...there's a loud mouth parent who feels they are a better coach or referee. Some even go as far as bullying other children. As a result, more and more kids are dropping out of sports.
Glennon Doyle, Author of the #1 New York Times Bestseller LOVE WARRIOR and CARRY ON, WARRIOR, recently shared on Instagram a great suggestion for obnoxious parents:
"Since you cannot be trusted: Bring lollipops. Put the pops in your loud obnoxious mouths as soon as you sit down on the sideline. Let the pops serve as a reminder to you that children are dropping out of sports in record numbers — largely because their parents are behaving like asshats on the sidelines in record numbers."
If you aren't one of these parents...I'd suggest bringing a bag of dum dums to pass out to those who need them.
