1.22 How to NOT Eff Up Your Child Athlete
October 11, 2018 Amee Quiriconi

There is little doubt that having your kids involved in a team-oriented activity, whether its band, the debate club or sports, can have a lasting and positive impact on their development, as well as provide critical skills that carry over into adulthood.

In fact, sports can be a major source of childhood trauma for kids with long-lasting negative impacts. <p>
Listen to Amee and Jax Anderson, a former Division I basketball player and now therapist specializing in working with teens,  talk about how parents DO hurt their kids through sports and how the whole experience can be done positively.<p>
