We send our kids to practice on a daily basis and they’re not always right in front of us. While training, kids in practice require some physical contact between the coach and the children. It is important to teach our children what is considered ‘acceptable physical contact’ and ‘unacceptable physical contact’.
In the video above, coach Mohamed Said discusses the difference between both and how to highlight to your children which areas that no one should ever touch, even if they are your coach.
According to Coach Mohamed, regardless of whether your coach is fixing your posture or engaging your muscles, there are certain areas they should not come in contact with whatsoever. As a parent, it is your job to ensure that your child is aware of what is normal and what isn’t.
Teach your child how to react if touched inappropriately
Your child needs to know what to do if they’re sexually harassed during practice. Teaching your child how to react is essential as many people tend to freeze and panic in the situation or are too ashamed or frightened that they choose to do nothing. Make sure your child knows you’ve got their back and that they should never be frightened or scared to share anything with you.
