Parents play an influential role in the lives of their children, including the part they play when their children participate in interscholastic sports and activities. This is why the National Federation of State High School Associations has created the course Positive Parenting within School Programs. Parents need to understand that their behavior in the stands, how they talk to their student after a practice or game, and the way they interact with the coaches and officials, makes all the difference in the enjoyment of their children’s experience. Learn how you, as a parent, can have a positive impact on your child and help create a memorable experience for everyone. Take the course, Positive Parenting within School Programs, available for free on the NFHS Learning Center.
