What some of our viewers said:
Craig Ryan ArsenaultI’m a marine veteran but I’m. Not putting my sons through boot camp just teaching true honor respect discipline any consequences for actions to keep honor alive and continue with ability to learn listening an do as told.
Shawn Kingbird Enjoyment comes as you learn the sport. Of course a game isnt fun if you dont know what you are doing. I tell my 9 year old son that things will get easier the more you practice. Attitude and mentality is what makes a child Un-coachable. The parenting shows at that point.
David FisherKids are so different as kids, and only some behaviors maybe transition into adult hood. I’ve coached baseball, worked with many kids all with various social emotional challenges. I don’t agree with this concept since kids grow and change as they grow.
Zachary Boris Agree, the meaning is broad. Kids who cannot take directive , or want to learn, will not become “employable” adults.
Victor M Tiburcio III Where there’s an un-coachable kid there’s usually a helicopter parent who had a helicopter parent. On the same token. There are uncoachable kids also suffer from a lack of respect and discipline needed to be set by at least one parental unit. If there’s no discipline from at least one parent, there’s no respect for anyone from that kid.
