So some parents wonder whether or not they should let their child quit a sport that they're very talented in. And I have to tell you from being a coach for 14 and 15 years now and having two children that play sports, never let your child quit a sport that they are talented in. You have to step in as the parent and make them commit to that sport, even when they want to quit. I think it's so important. I have a son that maybe was a little burned out on baseball, thought about quitting; I did not let him do it. Now he's gone on to be a star in high school and he's never really regretted staying with that sport that he was talented in.
