Parental Pressure

I hope she doesn't get kicked with a soccer ball so hard that it knocks her down. Will other children be kind and supportive while playing the game? How about the coach? Will he or she strengthen my child's morals by enforcing fair rules and practices? These are the main points that first come to mind when allowing my child to take part in group sports. These SHOULD be the only points that need to be thought of.more
