dp logo1Do's and Do Not's for Parents: In my many years as a high school coach, I hear and can tell many stories on parents and what they say and do during their child's career. Enough stories to write a book that would take several days to read!

Unfortunately I know that while that is most often the case, things happen because a parent is just that, a parent. Fore more, click here.
