I decided I want to get to know my readers better, plus, I am sure I have
a lot to learn from each of you, so here is something new for Monday's.
For the moment my friend and reader, please act as though your name is
and it is your wonderful job to write answers for this advice column every Monday.
(In other words,
I need we all need a little help) :)
I have a 7 year old boy, whom I absolutely adore! He is full of fun and laughter and always makes me smile. However, recently we signed him up for tennis lessons. He enjoyed them so much that we decided to take him and his sister to play one night as a family. As we began playing he was excited to show us everything he had been learning. I began playing with him, and that sweet little boy turned into a cocky and arrogant little tennis player. He began saying things like, "Come on Mom! Give me your best shot!" Then, when my husband played a game with him he said, "Dad, that wasn't a very good shot! You need to hit it like this!" How can we help him to play well in any sport, and, have good sportsmanship so others will want to be around him?
