My son is seven and he is pretty good at most sports. He is especially good at soccer. The other day, he was trying to block the other team from scoring and by accident he kicked the ball into the opposing teams net. He started crying and saying another kid looked at him mean. He said he is a horrible player. The last couple of years, players, coaches, and other parents have told him directly that he is the star player and he is great. I don't want to put all that pressure on him. I want him to have fun and know that it is okay to make mistakes. I have tried to talk to him about this but, nothing I have said has worked. Anyone have any suggestions I can use??
