In their own words - videos from young people about parental support

In these short videos young people talk about the support they've received from thier parents to get involved in sport and send some key messages to parents about the kind of support they can offer.

Key points

  • sometimes parents put pressure on children and young people to get involved or achieve
  • don't force young people to do something they don't want to
  • try to encourage children to believe they can achieve in sport
  • let children have fun and enjoy sport
