How Do You Handle An Obnoxious “Little League” Parent? – Daily Dilemma
Here is Today's Daily Dilemma:
So as spring and summer have arrived so has my kid's sports games. It feels like I'm at come sort of game everyday, soccer, softball, etc. I really do enjoy watching the kids play and rooting for my daughters and their teams. The kids are great and the coaches do a great job with the kids balancing fun with competition.
The problem I have is one particular parent that also has a daughter on my daughter's softball team. She is constantly making trashy comments to her friends about the girls. Like, "Ugh can't somebody teach that one how to catch?" or "These girls aren't even trying!" She isn't yelling it out to the girls, thankfully but I can hear her, and it makes me dread the games sometimes.
I really get annoyed but I know if I say something to her, even nicely there will be some sort of scene made, and that just isn't my style. I know this is a somewhat common problem so I wonder how other parents, coaches, or schools have handled it.
The "Daily Dilemma" on the Sean and Richie Show is featured every weekday morning at 6:40am. We and the listeners take on someone's problems and try to offer different perspectives. Now, these don't have to be huge problems- it could just be something bothering you or a friend, or it could be some little thing you and another just can't agree on. If you have a dilemma to share we'd love to hear it just e-mail us here at the show.
