No people are talking about the parents...not the children.
Maybe it’s not about thinking their kid is good and more about growth. The more a kid plays the better they will be in most cases. Just because your kid is elite today, doesn't mean he'll be elite tomorrow. Many of the kids that peak faster at a younger age eventually plateau when they get older.
The flipside to that question, why can’t a parent whose kid was good yesterday, not let go when they're no longer good tomorrow. They're the ones who are arguing with coaches and directors.
