All too often, well-meaning parents and coaches say and do the wrong things to their rowers right before or during competitions and as a result, inadvertently set them up to fail.
I was listening to your “Parents” audio today on my drive and I have to say it opened my eyes! Especially the part where you talk about “good” and “bad” nervous. What a life skills gift to teach parents how to teach their kids how to roll with the “juice” that naturally comes up as you’re about to perform! The “Juice” is normal, it is what will fuel you. Don’t fear “The Juice” embrace it. Such a great audio! Thank you. – Wesley, Nevada

“My coaching staff listened to the CD with me and are all very excited, so excited in fact that we are hosting a workshop for parents. I gave another copy of this CD directly to a couple of parents. The response was so positive these parents have actually volunteered to participate in helping to run the parent workshop. They listened to the CDs and consciously put into practice some of your parent guidelines. As a result, not only are they enjoying closer relationships with their children, but the kids are enjoying their sport again!” Tim, NC

“This is a GREAT tool to use with any sport parents. I had the parents on my soccer team listen to it in one of our meetings and I couldn’t believe the response. It opened their eyes. Doc, you have such a great way of presenting things. Your humor makes parents willing to listen to all the things they’ve been doing wrong and what they need to do to change without getting defensive. Bless you.” Ray B, Head Coach, MD
