When it comes to afterschool sports, moms deserve trophies of their own. In addition to herding kids back and forth to practice, it’s also essential for Junior to get the proper fanfare and a little extra practice at home. What is a mom to do when she really doesn’t know the ins and outs of the sports that her children play and finds herself not able to give those pointers and advice that a good practice buddy should?
Many sports moms are faced with the dilemma of not really knowing what’s going on when they sit in the bleachers of their kids’ sporting events. They can’t give helpful shout-outs to their children from the crowd because they don’t really know what to say. Many sports novice moms feel like, well, dummies as they find themselves not knowing how to congratulate their children on their good plays, or when they find themselves relying on cues from other parents to know when to even cheer.
Moms, it’s time to start pointing those giant foam fingers and ringing those cowbells with confidence in knowing that yes, indeed, now is a good time to cheer and yes, that was a great thing your child just did on the field. For Dummies has teamed up with some of the most trusted sports experts out there to help.
