The Dangers of Having Self Identity Wrapped Up In A Sport with Joshua Plante
Sports Dad Hub Podcast episode 24 features the story of Joshua Plante. Growing up in Canada, Josh became hyper focused on playing Division I football in the States. He was so focused that his self identity became completely wrapped up in his pursuit to play Division 1 football. But when injury cut his dream short, just as he was about to fulfill it, his world crumbled. For years, he defined himself as a football player. His life revolved around his goal to play for a big time college. After he could no longer play football, he felt lost. His life didn't have purpose. Who was he if he couldn't play football? In this episode Josh shares his journey of self discovery, and how he realized that all of the great character traits he developed in the pursuit of his dream translate into anything he chooses to do in life. Today Josh lives in Carrum Downs, Victoria, Australia where he helps empower future leaders to "discover their flow." A few years ago, Josh took up shot put and fell in love with throwing sports as his competitive outlet. He also coaches youth athletes and loves helping kids and teens discover the world of throwing sports.

Late Bloomers: Give Kids Time To Develop In Sports with Rich Karlgaard
The world of youth sports has become obsessed with early achievement & specialization. We want our kids to become incredible athletes who excel in sports. We constantly compare them to their teammates and kids they play against. If we feel like they're not as good, we put more pressure on them, start coaching from the sidelines and in the car ride home. We get them private coaches and lessons on the side. We start to wonder if they'd be better off specializing and going "all in" on their best sport. Our guest is author Richard Karlgaard. He’s a journalist, award-winning entrepreneur, and speaker. He's the author of the bestselling book, Late Bloomers: The Power of Patience in a World Obsessed with Early Achievement. Rich and Kevin talk about how kids today are under more pressure than any other generation to perform at young ages. If they don't meet society's, and parents', expectations, kids can feel like failures. We talk about how social media fuels the pressure fire and comparison game, and how parents use their kids' achievements as status symbols. Rich shares how and why it's so important for parents to give their kids time and space to develop and grow in their sports. Help kids find their way in sports by exposing them to a variety of sports and letting them play multiple sports for as long as they want to.

Help Your Kid Improve In Sports WITHOUT Criticism
In episode 7, I talk about how sports parents can help their kids get better at sports, WITHOUT criticizing them. A lot of kids love sports, but they hate the car ride home from games and practices. As they buckle themselves into the back seat, they mentally prepare to hear all about what they did wrong during their game and what they need to work on. I really believe that most sports parents who have these conversations with their kids have their kid’s best interest at heart. They think they’re helping. But what usually ends up happening is their kid blocks out what they’re saying and they wide up damaging their relationship in the process. If you want to help kids improve in sports, there’s a much better way to do it, without criticism. This episode will teach you how. www.SportsDadHub.com/7
