Re: Who is the father that pushes their kid the most in this sport 2011-2004 birthyear

Sorry, what\'s the storm that\'s brewing? Parents pushing their kids too hard?
Parents spending way too much money on meaningless hockey, in large part for bragging rights, while also sacrificing their kid's education.

And why is that your problem? If they screw things up with their kid, and blow their savings on it...why do you care?

Thank you to everyone for the good advice on how to raise my kids. I would never of known what was acceptable in terms of school absences, and how I should spend my money without help from this forum. Thank god there is a one size fits all formula that I now understand. I also don't know if I am tall enough to let my child play hockey since I am only 5'10". Is there some sort of cutoff I should be aware of? It seems that if he's not going to be 6'2" maybe it's a waste of our time?
Spend your money however you want as long as you understand the final destination is the beer league. Especially because you are only 5'10". :laughing:

Let\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'s hear it. Who is the biggest pusher.
The 2011 parents forcing their kids to miss school and go to Chitown this weekend..you people have a sickness.
You know how everyone says \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\"it doesn\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'t matter where you played, if your good enough they will find you\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\" this goes for 8 year olds also. #CrazyStupid
It\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'s not only this weekend. They were in Toronto for like a week in May, then they had Friday games during the Showdown, then they were in Montreal last weekend.

Same for the 2012s.

It\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'s crazy, because these same parents are going to make the same decisions when their kids are in higher grades.
Sorry your kid isn\'t good enough to play or got cut. This stuff is just pure jealousy and nothing more. People miss school to go skiing or leave for vacation early, or a ton of different things. We\'ll go to Chicago, play hockey, catch a Cubs game, and have a couple of good meals. It\'s a fun experience, just like Disney or whatever else people like to do.
Chicago is a tremendous city to visit. Love it there.
