Love of Sport Must Come From Child, Not Parents

Four-time Olympic medalist Angela Ruggiero says the love of sport must come from within each child; it can't be from the parent.  She urges parents to expose their kids to lots of different sports when they are young.  Once they find one they love, parents can help them be the best they can be at that sport by making sure, before every season, they still want to play, and, if they do, accepting the responsibililties that go along with being on a team, even if it means going to hockey practice at 5 a.m. in the morning when they would rather sleep.
