085 David on Being Tough Vs Being Comfortable in Your Own Skin – Part 4

Being comfortable in your own skin as a teenager can be difficult.  It’s an age when you are physically and emotionally developing and rapidly on occasions.   You may find regulating your emotions tough, you can often be easily influenced by others, you are becoming more aware of other people’s thoughts and opinions.   This can be a lot to deal with at a time when you getting to know yourself and form your view of the world.

This episode is all about helping youngsters navigate some of these challenges so that they grow up to be more comfortable in their own skin.  It’s a solo episode designed for parents, coaches and teachers who have an interest in sport and supporting children where I share some practical tips and aim to challenge your thinking.

Key Learning Points:

  • What type of behaviours would you like your child or young athletes exhibit on the pitch, course or court?
  • Do your behaviours as a coach or a parent match the behaviours that you are looking to instil?
  • Does the way that you communicate promote a confident child?
  • As a parent or coach is your self-worth attached to your children or team’s successes or failures.
  • Reflecting on “controlling the controllables” is important as a parent and coach in aiding the development of a child with positive self-esteem.
