Bullying in Youth Sports
Helping Young Athletes Cope with Bullies in Sports
Bullying is one of the top topics we hear about from sports parents. They say their kids are bullied by coaches and other young athletes, and this hurts kids' confidence, success and enjoyment in sports.
In fact, many kids drop out of sports due to bullying. To help all the sports parents and athletes struggling with bullying, we launched this new department. It includes our bullying program, "Helping Young Athletes Stay Confident and Mentally Tough in the Face of Bullies," plus articles, audio interviews and a Question-And-Answer section.
This section features advice from Carl Pickhardt Ph.D, a psychologist and lecturer who is in private counseling. Based in Austin, Texas, he's the author of "Why Good Kids Act Cruel," a book about bullying and "Surviving Your Child's Adolescence: How to Understand, and Even Enjoy, the Rocky Road to Independence". In addition, he writes a weekly parenting blog for Psychology Today entitled "Surviving (your child's) Adolescence."
