Do you really think that I'm talking about someone simply making Junior play pee wee football for a season or two? Do you think all LGB parents are like the nuts in that picture earlier in the thread? Extreme overbearing sports dads who "played in college but never made it big" can damage their kids psychologically for life. Read Andre Agassi's autobiography. Perfect example. Dude was messed up mentally off the court. https://www.psychologytoday.com/blo...1/parental-pressure-takes-toll-young-athletes http://www.independent.co.uk/life-s...psychological-damage-says-study-10485172.html Those people from the OP and earlier in the thread are causing extreme, irreparable harm to their children's psychological development. You seem offended by the analogy even though I already said the damage they cause are not equal and that the people in OP are causing more harm. But that the comparison I made is that these parent's are forcing what they wanted for themselves at a young age on their kids, which is always harmful regardless of the topic. But it's especially bad in this case.
