Rule No. 3 Emotion control and parents’ reaction to the coach’s decisions.

A few tips on how to behave at the stadium:

  • Try not to attract the attention of others and not create a stir around yourself. The vast majority of children do not like it when their parents actively manifest themselves in such situations.
  • Watch the game. You can communicate with the parents of other players who came to watch the game, but do not forget to look at the field from time to time, because balls in football are not often scored, so if you talk, you risk missing a key moments of the match. Now imagine that your child hits the opponent’s goal and, accepting congratulations from his teammates, looks for you on the stand, and at this moment you are talking with a neighbour and do not even look in the direction of your kid. Be attentive!
  • Don’t try giving advice. After all, you are not the one who plays football, but your child. Therefore, it is not necessary to constantly coordinate his actions while sitting on the stand. By doing this, you will only distract him, while your main task is to communicate with him/her after the game.
  • Maintain equal relations with all your child’s teammates without exception. Do not focus on the stars of the team, it can offend your kid’s mates.
  • Support decently. You should not shout insults at the referee, opponents or players of your team who have blundered in this or that situation.
