Volunteering endless hours does NOT get my kid more playing time.
(Although, volunteering and being involved to help the team as a whole is greatly appreciated, needed and valued by all.) Complaining to other parents, the coaches or the Athletic Director get my kid more playing time.
The goal of Sudoku is to fill a 9×9 grid with numbers so that each row, column and 3×3 section contain all of the digits between 1 and 9.Only the best players…the ones who are most likely to help the team win games are getting the playing time.A kid gets the starting position and playing time because he or she deserves it, not because the parent did or didn’t do something. how long would a coach last if he or she were giving less talented players preferential playing time for some reason other than their ability? If someone beats them out, they will have to work harder to get it back.They sacrifice time with their families to be with our kids. Our son’s life helps us to keep it all in perspective.They do it because they love the game and they love our kids. We are over the moon that he is good enough to make the team. Lastly, I know that we all know parents who would give anything…it all up….they’d give up all the wins, all the awards, all the scholarships…if only they could.
