Respect For The Coach
But it was interesting to watch him when his team’s coach showed up. He was a touch late (traffic) so some of the other dads kicked in to help, but when Demetrius saw his coach, he immediately ran over and sat down on the bench, instead of ignoring my requests to behave, go and sit with the team, or maybe, go in the game!
Demetrius never played, but he behaved. It is always a funny situation when watching your kids interact with other adults, especially authority figures. As one mother commented, “Just be happy they are doing something that their coaches and teachers tell them to do… even if they do completely ignore us.”
