Encourage your children to believe in themselves and that you believe in them too. Be positive in their accomplishments and supportive during the ups and downs. Set goals, foster self-responsibility, discourage excuses, encourage persistence. Support their coach.Winning is not always measured by a medal but by simply achieving a goal they have set.
