Parents: Make Certain Your Kids Have Kick@ss Coaches & Mentors

Written by Doug Giles on June 14, 2018

“Everyone has a plan until they get punched in the mouth.” — Mike Tyson

The leaders in your life play a huge role in shaping you, in teaching you how to face a challenge, in teaching you how to persevere.

Coaches have a special role, one different from mom and dad’s role.

Think of them as ‘specialists’. They have one goal and one goal only… to raise you to excellence in your sport. And that’s something kids today are sorely in need of.

Get ready for a wild ride episode of Warriors and Wildmen complete with a parachute that didn’t open, a warrior chick whose coach didn’t give up on her, even when she was ready to give up on herself, and a tale of two baseball coaches — and the difference they made in one young punk’s life, both for better or worse.

By the end of it, you’ll be wanting to get your kids into sports…. preferably something physical and demanding.

Raising Righteous & Rowdy Girls

In ‘Raising Righteous and Rowdy Girls’, Doug Giles reinforces the notion that little women don’t need to be pampered by their fathers to turn out right. And having met his beautiful daughters, I know his philosophy works. As a strong-willed woman who thinks her daddy is the greatest guy in the world, I can tell you this is a must-read for every man who hopes to earn the same title. —-S.E.
