Have Parenting Questions? Ask a Parenting Counselor for Answers
I am curious as to why your son did not make the Freshman team when he had been working out with them? No offense..but were his skills that off par? How many students did not make the team? How many made the team? Usually, most students make the Freshman team. What you can have your son do, if it is available, is to still compete on city league teams. There are even travelling basketball teams so that he can keep his skills developed. There is always next year. Believe me, and I have 3 sons, he will make the team next year if he continues to put forth the effort . Teach him not to be a quitter in times of adversity. Life is full of ups and downs and his reaction to the situation will only make him stronger for the next trial.
If this has helped, please ACCEPT. Have a great day!!!
