In this sports psychology podcast, Dr. Cohn helps parents understand and support his daughter who is struggling to play more aggressively and offensively during competitions. Here is the question Dr. Cohn answers in this episode:
Sports Parent, DAVID: "My freshman daughter plays varsity basketball and in a recent player meeting, her coach remarked that she needed to be more offensively aggressive in games like how she is in practice. My daughter explained that she did not want to let the coach or her team down by making a mistake and opts to "make the safe play. Are there any strategies on how I can support my daughter to play a style that takes risks and not worry about making a mistake?"
