easy child plays several sports, and he plays for the same coach for both football and baseball. The coach's son and easy child are best buddies and they love being able to play their sports together, and the coach just seems to have a fantastic way with the kids. They all love him. Last night at easy child's baseball game I was talking to the coach's wife (she and I have become very friendly since easy child started playing for him) and she was asking how difficult child was doing. We were talking about how difficult child wants to find a job over the summer and that I think this is a good idea because it will give him something to do. The coach came over and suggested that when football starts in July have difficult child help him with coaching duties. While I think it's not a bad suggestion, my concern is that these sports are things that easy child does away from the problems that difficult child brings with him. While I think that difficult child would treat the other kids on the team in an okay manner, I'm not so sure now he would do coaching easy child. I haven't brought it up husband or to difficult child or easy child yet. I'm still mulling it over in my mind what I think about it. The coach thinks that it will do difficult child world of good. One certain levels I agree with him. But as the experienced mother of a difficult child, I'm not sure if it's a good idea for easy child. Any thoughts?
