Take Me Out To The Ballgame! - But Mind Your P's and Q's

The days are getting warmer, the grass is getting greener and the nights are getting longer. These are sure signs that it is THAT time of year again - the beginning of summer sports season.

There is nothing I enjoy more than heading out to the field with my family to watch one of our kids play ball. The fresh air, chats with neighbours, smiles on the kids faces and healthy glow all make for a perfect evening. However, that bliss can quickly be shattered when a parent takes the competition too far.

I came across this photo and loved the message. I thought it was a good reminder as the baseball, soccer and other summer sports seasons start up.

Let's keep the sportsmanship in our sports and teach our kids valuable lessons about compassion, teamwork, and respect this summer season. Let us not belittle or bully but instead build pride, confidence and skills. LET'S PLAY BALL
