Burned out

Just read an interesting piece on ESPN.com about Elena Delle Donne, who, less than a year ago, was considered the top girls high school basketball player in the country. Delle Donne originally planned to play basketball at UConn. Now, she's playing volleyball at Delaware.

I think as parents we should take this to heart. It is our responsibility to love unconditionally, help guide our kids to make good choices in life and be there for them. I am not sitting in judgement because at times throughout the years I too have been an offender of pushing my kids in certain directions(not necessarily in sports all the time). It sure seems odd that the parents would not meet with the press. I hope they have decided to accept their daughters decision and back her.
