Help Your Child Succeed in Sports – Uncensored Talk:

Death to Youtube – you’re probably saying – What?!? 

WHY?!?

Here’s the thing, I have nothing against YouTube. On the contrary I think there are great AMAZING things to watch and learn on YouTube.

But here’s what my biggest concern is and I can see how this is affecting my kids and their abilities

When it comes to sports, especially Extreme Sports, what do you see on YouTube? The wins, the new tricks, the crazy extreme shit that we know is done.

In this episode I talk about why there aren’t any videos showing the trial and error, the hardships, the heart aches, the work that goes behind all the successes.

Because that’s the truth.

My kids are watching YouTube and are constantly putting their favorite athletes on pedestals and almost feeling like they can never get to where they are.

But they forget, that it took years and many many hours and attempts to do what we are seeing in these videos.

I personally believe that the best YouTube channels that are going to be really helpful are the ones that show the crap that you have to go through. The heartache, the sadness, the work. 

I get it’s important to be watching the athletes show what they do best, so you can see where you can see the outcome. 

But let’s never forget the COME-UP.
