As parents, we can sometimes be too hard on our kids when they fail, especially in sports. How do you handle it when your kid strikes out or drops a touchdown pass?
There is a national campaign quietly gaining steam to change the way we handle our kids on the field mistakes.
"He's Just a Little Boy" is a decades old poem recounting a young boy at the plate, swinging and missing with the bases loaded, and the crowd starts riding him for his failure.
"Tears fill his eyes," it reads, "the game's no longer fun."
I came across this poem in Marysville, WA this week, posted at a field where my son was playing in a tournament.
