emma1 Posted June 10, 2008 Report Share Posted June 10, 2008 I am adjusting supplements, so when my daughter started acting edgy during the "lazy days of summer" I immediately thought it was one of the supplements or the combo of them. However, I now believe I have figured out that the cause is most likely the fact that my daughter is working out for soccer daily and she has a new coach who is critical and yells at my daughter frequently. She is in high school, and I know that talking to the school or the coach is just simply not an option. Another mom tried that earlier this year -- her sweet (and talented!) daughter ended up sitting the bench almost all season. The school explicitly said that they would "not interfere with the coaching process" and basically told the mom she was over-stepping. My daughter believes she is being singled out (which may not be true) -- but I know that the coach is being verbally critical in front of the entire team. My daughter handles it during practices, but then falls apart at home. She loves the sport -- so the situation "is what it is" -- I can't change it (can't change the program; can't get my daughter to quit). Any suggestions for helping my daughter cope? This goes on all summer! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
