That's what I was told by some listeners when I asked why there are hardly any parents at my son's soccer practice.

I was told that coaches don't like parents along the sidelines watching practice because it is a distraction during practice. The coach is running the practice and not the parents.

I have been an athlete all my life and my parents were always at my practices and were never a distraction. If anything, it made me feel good that my parents were there with me and taking an interest in my sport.

How do YOU feel about this? Do go to your kid's practices? Take The Mike Show Poll!
