Behind every kid who receives a participation award is a parent who has dragged their kid to practice when they don’t feel like it.
My kids had a lie-in today. I quit coaching football on a Sunday this season, and the kids have no obligations.
I struggled with it for a while, I felt the urge for them to be doing something until I realised that I trust my kids. Day after day, hour after hour, cycling to school whatever the weather, does that.
There is no punchline. Just a point of reflection. Who is it for?
