Junior Tennis Parents: BEWARE

As the parent of a junior tennis player, I’m sure you’ve considered the long term impact of your child’s junior tennis experience. For a child who simply enjoys the game and friendly competition, the experience is easy to navigate as a parent. The secret is to keep it simple and make sure your child is having fun. Parenting a child who has a burning desire to win matches is much more complex. To this child, the junior tennis experience is extreme, and will undoubtedly be the most important overall education of his/her childhood. I’m not exaggerating. I know dozens of junior players I grew up with in the 1970’s that leveraged the lessons they learned on the court into world-class success in business and life. I also know former national champions that were pushed so hard by their parents that they turned to drugs and crime. Two of them are serving life sentences, and their crimes were the manifestation of the frustration they experienced in junior tennis, most of which came from overly ambitious expectations placed on them by their parents. These players made their own decisions and are responsible for their actions, but their parents set them on a collision course at an early age. Being a competent junior tennis parent is an important job that will impact your child for the rest of his/her life. Watch this short video and make a decision today to be the most educated, informed tennis parent on the junior circuit. Your son/daughter will thank you for the rest of your life.   Steve Siebold  ( 6:30 )
