    I coached my daughter in the sport of archery from beginner to national games level.  The difficulty I had was in appearing to be fair to the amount of time that I spent on her concerns while I was coaching 10-20 other young people at the same time.  I made sure that I managed my time effectively so that everyone received the same degree of attention to detail and when I had to spend more time with anyone, particularly my daughter, I made sure that the group knew why I was doing it. 

    Emotionally, it was difficult for me to see her meet her challenges, but I had to take off the "mom" hat and remain a committed, ethical coach.  When we finished training/competition, then the "mom" hat came back on.  Leave the sport on the field!
