Hi, first time poster here. I have a 13yr old son that is heavily involved in a team sport. Over the past 12months he has made a couple of state teams. The problem I am having is a few different coaches have told me he has a bad attitude. Now it breaks my heart to hear this as I know he loves the game he plays. He is strong willed but so soft hearted and gives out that he is confident but deep down I know he isnt.. so when coaches are trying to help him, his body language gives off that he doesn't care what they are saying. When I talk to him about it, he says he feels like they are telling him he isn't any good, so is getting tense and obviously giving off that vibe. Is it confidence, is it anxiety ? How do I help him start recognising his body language and build some confidence and positive behaviour? I struggle as much as he does with the above😅 I don't want him to get a reputation that he is uncoachable(sadly I think he already does)..
