About the Book
American youth sports are in crisis: Parents are fighting with referees, coaches, their kids, and one another. Micromanaged kids are losing their passion to play. In Let Them Play, sports psychologist and team consultant Dr. Jerry Lynch provides an antidote to parental overinvolvement. Combining psychological insight with spiritual principles from Taoism and Buddhism, Lynch lays out core principles to help parents achieve equanimity and provide healthy direction for their kids. He gives parents strategies and tools taken from his work with national champions to help kids to perform at higher levels, become better team players, and most important, have more fun. Filled with easy-to-implement advice, Let Them Play will empower your athletic child to be mentally strong for sports and life.
My Take on the Book
This was a powerful book that offers you insight into the things that you need to think about if you are a parent with kids that are in sports. The book is filled with so many great ideas about how best support your kids in their sports without being overly involved. At the same time the book allows you to work on building up your child to be better, stronger and more mentally ready to take on the challenges that will arise both in sports and beyond. The book was well laid out and easy to read. I particularly loved how practical that book was. My daughters are still young in their sports playing years so reading this now was a perfect time and I am looking forward to utilizing the concepts for many years to come!
