Our son has been with this team for nearly 5 years, but the parents this year are taking it to a whole new level. A few families, whom we thought were close friends, have now chosen to exclude us and others because they are not happy with the Coach whom we are friends with. While we may not agree with some of the Coach's antics, we stand behind him and his decisions.
Both my husband and I have put in countless hours to this team and we would have thought that if we did or said something wrong or to offend one of them, they would have come and told us. But that is not the case. As adults we can deal it, but now they are started to exclude our son and some of the players.
We have made the decision that we are pulling him from the team and move him to another team. We are trying to set an example that treating people badly is not okay. Are we doing the right the thing?
How do we tell our child? Or do we let him make the decision? He is going to be heart broken. He has such a big heart. He loves his friends and loves soccer.
I want to be able to walk away with our heads held high and have our son do the same.
