Tips for Parents: Pressure of Performance…
“We live in a culture that celebrates talent more than integrity, we got it backwards. Talent depreciates overtime so does intellect and appearance.” Mark Batterson. We are a culture that values high performance, high scoring, and getting that personal best. We say it is not about performance, but we pay for tutors and trainers and put a high emphasis on winning and winning performances. We measure everything, we even have state ranking of 4th grade basketball players. Performing your best at a level of excellence is a wonderful pursuit, but we need to do what we can to insure it does not come at a high cost.
Tip… Consider helping kids realize that their performance in a sport is not what defines who they are. Hard work is expected, but helping your athlete to understand that there are many factors that go into performance, that they can only really control the effort they put in and the attitude they do it with. Maybe point them to what God says about performance… “To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God: (Micah 6:8). Review with them… “what does the Lord your God require of you, but to fear the Lord your God, to walk in all His ways and to love Him, to serve the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul, 13 and to keep the commandments of the Lord” Deut 10:12-13.
Think of a team where all the players give maximum effort with a positive attitude, with all their heart and soul and then Surrender the outcome to God!
