Today, I went to my son's school soccer game. Unfortunately, I couldn't get excited about it because my idiot son kept diving the moment anyone so much as breathed on him. It eventually earned him a penalty shot that won him the game. I was so ashamed, I snuck out to avoid being seen with him. FML

#73, actually yes. If your child is doing things wrong it IS appropriate parenting to make them feel loved and supported. If I were on drugs and started stealing from my mother she would be there to help me. But I'm not in drugs, because my mother guided me. Unfortunately OP's child will probably not receive similar emotional care.
Emotionally abusive parents are what's wrong with society.

I agree #3. Just being what i assume is a child getting overexcited and being bad at something doesnt warrant a parent calling them an idiot on a public forum. Kids screw up, they havent learned from their mistakes the way we have.

73, I think drug abuse and failing at a sport are two wildly different categories. OP's reaction was very extreme and probably damaging to the kid's self esteem. I'm not saying everybody should get a ribbon for trying, but damn, would it kill you to sit down with your child and explain to them the importance of sportsmanship? OP handled that in a very immature way for someone who is supposed to be in charge of raising another human being.

way to be #3!! I am glad to read that I was not the only one thinking that OP acted horribly. I am so sad that you have been thumbs-down. I am sad for the human race right now.
#73, I am so very sad for your kids. very sad indeed.

I sooooo want to get in on this but I've already been warned about discussing politics twice now...
I do believe its the coddlers ruining society though.

Is it really so impossible to have a balance between the two sides? You know, ensure your kids knows you love them no matter what and will always try to help them but also let them know when they're being a dick and help them see the possible consequences of their actions?

Sounds like your kid is in elementary school. If that's the case, calm the fuck down. He's not an idiot. He's a child. If you don't change your attitude toward your son, he's going to grow up hating himself and that will lead him to unhealthy behavior that will destroy his life in one way or another.

People dive in hockey too, as a player of both sports I know.
