I'm beginning to think there are more difficult children in the world than PCs. Tryouts are approaching for our elite teams. Many of these parents (who appear to be PCs) are showing their difficult child stripes. Why do grown people feel the need to post comments on the sports forums for our area, anonomously telling everyone that "this 9 year old sucks", "that 10 year olds parents are idiots to even take him to tryouts", "the Pirates are the worst team in the league and shouldn't be called elite and anyone who plays there is a fool", and my favorite "Child Protective Services should be called on that family for making their child play elite". AAAGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This is a children's sport. Yes, I understand the pressure around the next two weeks (trust me I'm sweating bullets over my kids tryouts) but to degrade other children and families???? And once tryouts are over, we will spend the next two weeks hearing how stupid the coaches are for taking Billy instead of Johnny. Normally I can just blow it off but with my worries over tryouts, they are ticking me off!! I really wish the moderater of that board was as pro-active as our moderators here are. While their policy says they will pull any post that 'defames' anyone or that mentions a child, it can take days at times One of my friends said that it is a backwards compliment. That they only post about the kids they are scared will beat out their own child. I suppose that is one way to detach.
