Intelligent Questioning
25 June 2019 | by westsideschlSee all my reviews

Would have liked to have seen more research into the negatives on young athletes of the recent trend toward over specialization; excessive parental management; Summer camp excursions (parents as scheduling secretaries); specialized athletic school enrollment & frequent high school transfers. They could even have examined grade school sports such as tackle football with screaming parents & sometimes professionalized by escorted mobile food trucks & age level cheer leaders.

Liked the emphasis on creative unstructured free time. Perfectionism but w/fun. Importance of discipline; mental rehearsal & study.
