When the Kid Needs a New Baseball Coach — i.e., Not You

Journalism, parenting

This is a piece I wrote for the New York Times’ Motherlode blog shortly after my latest, and—I’m promising myself (for now)—last season as my son’s baseball coach.

It’s more about me and my failings than the kid’s, but to be honest, I’m having buyer’s remorse about using the word “terror” to describe the kid. I merely meant he was a pain.

There, that should stave off any future resentment.
