One more soccer game done for the season and only one more to go. Today it didn't rain, which is a bonus. So, just a few things about today's games:
To the Dad that made his daughter cry twice, because she wasn't playing up to your standards...chill out. Please remember that these kids are 6 years old. There is no need to reprimand your children, in front of other people and make her cry. You have done nothing for her self-esteem and have only embarrassed her.
To the other Dad who felt the need to yell out everything that he wanted the girls to do...and then would get mad and make comments when they didn't listen to him: Leave it to the coach. This is why she is called "Coach" and you are called "Incredibly Annoying Father." (at least in my head.) Getting mad at little girls because they don't understand that when they play defense that they need to stay back...is not going to get you anywhere. They just want to kick the ball. Also, please stop yelling at the goalie for throwing the ball back into the game and throwing it to the other team. It was her first time playing goalie and she was excited and nervous, because everyone was yelling.
Lastly, to the mother that forgot that it was her turn to bring the treats for the end of the game: What do you have to say for yourself?
I am so, so, so sorry and I will bring EXTRA good treats to practice on Wednesday to make up for it. Bad Mommy. Bad.
