Parenting and Soccer

Yesterday Nicholas had his third and last soccer lesson until he resumes a new batch of lessons in November.

What makes this tidbit  particularly interesting to me is not so much watching Nicholas run around although that's always fun to watch but my observations of a couple of the other parents. 

Parent One:  "Come on, Kerry.  You don't have Alexis's power so you're going to have to develop speed.  Now let's get out there and hustle."

Parent Two:  "Jack, you've got to concentrate.  Now go after the ball.  Pay attention"

These and similar remarks continued throughout the 45 minute session.

Guess how old these kids are?  10? 12? 14?  No, 3 and 4 yrs old.
