The report from US Soccer about the Berhalter-Reyna controversy and the the youth-soccer-like approach of the Reynas to their professional son's playing time made me think about my own mostly successful efforts to stay out of my son's interaction with his coaches. I say mostly -- just this month, in his last year of soccer before college, I quietly approached one of his coaches with a couple of suggestions to get more out of him playing in a new, entirely unfamiliar role that (ulterior motive here) I think might benefit my son beyond this season. I wouldn't have done it if I didn't know the coach pretty well. But I've always suspected some of the parents I've known have regularly tried to lobby for more playing time, different roles, less playing time for rival kids (that one I'm almost certain has happened with at least one parent I've known for years), ... So I'm curious: For anyone willing to own up to it, what's your least proud moment in your soccer parenting, whether that's your interactions with coaches, other parents, on the match-day sidelines, ...?
