1. Help your child find their sport. Don't try to make him a champion in the sport, dreamed of you. It can be quite different. Do not drag it at all, if bodily contact and drop cause he had a persistent fear. The child can be talented in something else.
2. Find the child a good, good coach. Do not chase those promises in the short term to make a child into a champion. This is not important at the initial stage. The main thing that the child was interested in, so he could develop. The atmosphere in the classroom, support of the coach. At the initial stage the tasks of a coach are fostering interest in the sport, to teach the initial skills, teach safety and commandment in the audience.
3. Do not load child classes full. The child needs to have time to rest, recover, and even just droop and play. Periodically it may be the desire to become small again, to go back to mom and dad under the wing. This is the normal growth of the child. Went out into the world, poshustree there and back, in a cocoon to recharge your parental warmth and unconditional love. It will be saturated again and rush outside.
4. Give your child the opportunity to grow at their own pace. Do not hurry to coach him to a championship result. In my experience, early Champions, before leaving. Typically, these crises To a 9-10 or 13-14 years. Those who do are 4-5 years old and actively speak at the event, often by this age, losing interest in Hobbies, sport, and that's it. So give them a try. Or to play quietly grow into one, but without constant evaluation and competition. I'm not talking about species such as gymnastics, acrobatics, and the like. I'm talking about martial arts. Better to start with for 9 years. But if started early, not "souhaite" child the result, it needs to explore the world.
5. Praise and maintain. Criticism, even constructive, can beat off all hunting to do. The criticism, let's talk heart to heart, share some experiences until the child in question. And even then do not rush to give all the answers. Encourage self - thinking, search, and guesses. The fight is very important.
6. Be together, not on opposite sides. Watching the video together struggle, movie, discuss, again ask questions. Read along books about wrestlers and wrestling. Go to watch the competition. Read biographies of famous wrestlers that brought them to the sport, what crises are they worried that helped them to cope and overcome. Dream, let's dream of the child, even if it's not about sports.
7. Disassemble the notion that the athlete will have to meet the competition, rest and recovery, health maintenance, mental training, motivation, friendship and mutual assistance, responsibility, boundaries and rules with other people what can and what can not, where to stop and where to exert efforts and persevere. Values, attitudes, goal setting, and planning the distribution of power in the Short and long target distances. Speak the language as the child, as simply as possible, with the game or humorous inserts. This places you, as the parent demands to understand what your child does.
8. Make your child the correct nutrition. Often I have seen young athletes who came to practice with carbonated soft drinks, Pepsi-Cola, chips. It was food after school. Of course, this food does not go far. Read about healthy eating, talk with experts in food.
9. Help your child to develop the ability to make decisions. Stay close and stop only in the case that it is dangerous to life. Let the child experiment, reflects on it, receives.
10. Help relive the fear and anxiety before competition, but also a sense of frustration in case of loss. Don't be afraid themselves of these feelings. They are natural. There is no such warrior that is not afraid of, it is important to learn how to interact with fear and manage your state. While the child is small will fit a hug. Although then they too can help, just maybe, the child will not want it to be on everyone's mind. Teach him to use the ground, breathing. To do calming exercises or moods. Learn to withdraw from the body tension and be aware of your feelings. Read about it, experiment and remember that a single recipe for all does not exist. Do not inflate the child excessive confidence. Better ask what he is afraid of and help find a way to cope with that. Ask the child that would now have the support, or the kind of assistance he now wants to. So your help will be more popular and effective.
If you have difficulties in order to help the child athlete, if he lost motivation, has difficulty transitioning from one stage to another of his sports career, the transition from youth sports to youth or to adult. If it is difficult to return to the sport after a trauma or have difficulty in maintaining weight category, if the "always second", "always third", or there is a particular opponent, contact. I advise both parents and the athletes themselves. Together we look for the solution
