No reason to poison the well if you donít have to.

Yes I see that a lot in youth sports. Grown men and women tearing down children on their kids team and off their kids team...for what? The parents who yell for children in the outfield to DROP IT, DROP IT, DROP IT....it's just disgusting. You shouldn't want your child to succeed by watching another child fail.
