Thoughts on being a Good Parent Caddy

  • The player knows he/she has made a bad shot – they do not need you to tell them.
  • The player knows he/she has made a bad shot – they do not need you to say it was good or ok or it will be fine.
  • The player did not make the bad shot on purpose.
  • If you have nothing good to say, don’t say it.
  • We need to be less invested in how well or not our child plays.  Think about it, can you watch a  bad shot and not really care?  If not, how can we expect our child not to, especially if he/she knows we care a great deal?  The less he/she worries about how we feel, I bet the better the round will be.  Our approach and attitude is critical.
