I have failed as a coach.
Kris and I are very competitive toward each other. When we are playing a game of anything we trash talk to each other. It is all done in fun.
While playing soccer with Zack the other day I jokingly said "you're going down." Yeah, it came back to haunt me yesterday while we were out back playing soccer again. He set the ball down and prepared himself to kick, he looked up at me and said "Mom, watch out cause you are going down!"
I know it is not good sportsmanship so I guess I need to watch what I say and teach him to be a good sport should he ever play on a team.
Note to self: Watch what you say to your son, no matter if you are clowning around or not.
