This is more of a rant. I am currently a compulsory coach at a gym that my L4 daughter trains at. Now I treat all of my athletes the exact same, no special privileges. Absolutely none. I'd rather not coach my own kid....but sometimes it doesn't work out the way we'd like. This past meet my daughter did very well for her division. We had several other girls do very well also. I received a complaint that I favored my own child over the other girls. One particular mother was upset that I competed her child on beam first on purpose. That I knew she hated it but did it anyway. The athlete didn't score very well, but I would never do anything intentional or conniving like that. That's just ridiculous and what kind of coach would I be?! I've really taken this complaint pretty hard because that is not and was not the case. Has anyone ever had to deal with a situation like this? If so....what helped?
