Basketball Mom needs help with coping?
Are there any other Basketball Mom's who sit back and watch their sons play ball with their Dad's. The games come before church, before family reunions, and before fun. Then comes high school and they have to play for the best in the area. When does it stop? The D1 schools are now calling, writing, and we're still not there yet. What bothers me most is I am supposed to support my Son and I do, but the games make me sick. I feel bad if they lose, I feel bad if my son has a bad game, I feel bad if the coach is unfair to my son. UGH talk about making me sick. If the game doesn't the politics surely do. Why is that? I can handle stress... I just can't seem to handle stress from sports because isn't it just supposed to be a game? Yeah right. BTW-- Did I mention my son does love this stuff and there is no doubt he is enduring this stuff because of the love. He must. Any advice to a Mom who just wants to clap, and cheer her son on, and hear or see no evil.
