Every week I see the same little boy, around 4, wailing through his swim lesson. Always the same routine - he enters the pool area and starts crying.

From USASwimming.org, Mike Gustafson:
Do you remember your first time meeting a sports hero? When you walked down the street and saw Tom Brady? Maybe you were a kid. Suddenly, up close and personal, your favorite sporting superstar looked somehow different.

When my son was about one we were on one of those turbulent flights where you suspect even the pilot is white-knuckling it. I made one of my better parenting decisions at that moment. I looked at him and said ‘this is the fun part, where the plane goes bumpity-bump!’ And, here’s the important thing, I looked like I was enjoying myself! I did not…Continue
