The problem is parents pay too much attention on what other parents and kids are doing and then fear of missing out. Focus on your own kid and be the best parent you can be, you would not be bothered by what you described.
There does seem to be a lot of wanting the next best thing. No one seems to be happy with where they are and what they're doing. Always gotta be doing more to get ahead and get to the next level. No loyalty to teams anymore.
Replace "parent" with "coach" and you've hit the nail on the head. Replace "coach" with "organization" and you've got another winner.
The kids are always losing because of adults. Parents lose because they get duped by the ego of loser coaches. Everyone is getting ****ed by the greed of the owner.
