Parenting is Not a Spectator Sport

About four years ago, my now 16-year old stepson started playing lacrosse.

I have evolved from someone who didn’t know where the lacrosse field was to a woman with a favorite spot on the bleachers. I still don’t know all the nuances of the game, but I have a sense of what everyone’s supposed to be doing. I know that the defenders rarely stray past midfield and that attackers get all the glory, scoring goals with near balletic elegance. Even with that knowledge, the first time I could really follow a game was last week, and as I was leaving the field, it struck me that what the kids are doing on the field isn’t that different from what the adults are doing off of it.

Parenting is sports without the pads.

• You have to know your position.

• Attitude is everything.

• Time outs are to be used strategically.
