Re: Five types of hockey parents - which one are you?
What about the parent who buys whatever they hear other parents / kids talking about? New sticks, equipment whatever.... Have one of those on the team my son plays for, total poser.
even better. i had a peewee parent buy their child that $2xx stick for Christmas. fine, but it was about FOUR inches too big. they would not cut it down as they spent so much money they wanted to extend the life by getting him to 'grow into it'.
a couple of weeks later i showed them the tape wearing at the heal and untouched at the toe, which (obviously) explained his sudden inability to catch a pass or shoot. they got the hint and bought another (but $50) stick. but at least they did, some never do.
