"Through the Eyes of Parents, Children and a Coach: A Fourteen-Year Participant-Observer
Investigation of Youth Soccer"
No review or endorsement are available at this time by Dr. Daniel Frankl but here's what readers had to say about ""Through the Eyes of Parents, Children and a Coach."
Through the Eyes has helped me better understand youth sport. I have taken each experience recounted within the book and related it to a similar experience that I had. In this way, I feel that I have a better understanding of why certain things happened the way they did while I was playing sports. Some of the incidents described within the book brought back memories that were wonderful and others that made me cry.
--K. Helmke, Youth Sport Coach, San Antonio, Texas
The issues brought to light in Through the Eyes reveal the nature of American sport and the problems associated with it. Many people are narrow-minded and only able to see the impact that sport has on their own children and themselves. This book will enlighten readers as to what others experience.
--C. Kelly, High School Lacrosse Coach, Crofton, Maryland
Maybe by seeing what happened to the individuals in Through the Eyes, those involved in youth sport will see the errors that were made and be able to be more effective parents and coaches as a result. I must admit that when I read the book, I discovered flaws that I possess. This will help me grow as a coach. I have also learned new ways to look at the views held by others and this will help me better understand their goals and behaviors. In turn, what I learned will help me better deal with parents and coaches who hold views that differ from nine.
--W. Cottle, High School Soccer Coach, San Angelo, Texas
