Share the team manager role

If you are away from home through work or travel, or don’t have regular access to your children, and are therefore not able to be there each week, you may be reluctant to take on a team manager role for your child’s sport. Have you thought about being team manager on a shared basis? You may be used to sharing a job at work, so why not use this experience to take on a shared team manager role.

Children usually really like it when their dad is doing something to support their team.

Tips:

Keep talking

If you work away from home or travel a lot, be honest with your kids and your partner about how you are coping.

Experiences:

Coping with Loss

One father wrote his dad a letter about all the good things, and when his dad died he found it had been opened many times.
