As a parent what should you do? What should you NOT do?
Of course we are all trying to do our best by our children, but sometimes some of our help does not actually help them! When it comes to competing, there are some key skills it is worth learning about. Maybe you have them already and exhibit them – great, it’s always worth knowing we are doing the best things. Maybe you have seen a reaction by your child on court and wondered how best to help them. Maybe you just want to learn how to help them manage the experience of playing matches, as in tennis we usually lose more than we win!
This excellent series of videos from the LTA are really informative and I think ALL parents should consider them compulsory viewing. The first one is here: https://youtu.be/6yFbp-WqO8U or you can view the whole of the LTA’s Parents in Tennis article here.
