A new coach visited a soccer club and happened upon an older coach on the field. Anxious to learn something about the club the new coach hailed the older coach to talk for a minute.
“What kind of players/coaches/referees/parents are here?” asked the new coach.
“Well, what were the players/coaches, referees and parents like where you came from?” answered the older coach.
“They were awful. Troublemakers actually; The most childish individuals on the planet, and not a one of them to be trusted. That’s why I left.”
“Is that so?” answered the older coach “I’m sorry, but you’ll find the same kind of individuals here; it’s bad!”
Frustrated, the new coach walked away to visit another club.
Sometime later another new coach reached the older coach and asked “What kind of players/coaches/referees/parents are here?”
“Well, what were the players/coaches/referees/parents like where you came from?” answered the older coach.
“They were the Best. Helpful, Genuine, and Friendly. I’m very sorry that I had to leave them actually.”
“Fear not,” said the older coach, “You’ll find the same kind of players/coaches/referees/parents here; It’s Great!”
Moral: We are a product of our own and our children’s environment!
So, Please Do Not Ever Forget That…
