The one clear message I got is that the parents can raise an exceptional human being who can act, and that requires a committment to their education. Thanks for the A2A! - Alan. There are crew members on any film or tv project with school aged kids called many names, set teachers, set tutors or studio teachers that go to where a production is filming and provide for the educational needs of the minor enrolled in school.

Ok, so I haven't stayed up into the wee hours finishing a book in months. But I just read this cover to cover in less than 12 hrs (including dinner time and bedtime). Swim parents, sports parents, all parents, this is a great book. First, it's written from the perspective of the grown child with all sorts of insights and feedback that I know I as a parent crave. Second, Summer Sanders is so down to earth and just gets it so right. Priorities, perspective, and recognizing privileges. I highly recommend this book for all the parents I know still raising kids. I did cry while reading. I do want my kids to read it before they are adults, because there was so much insight for the athlete also.

As a parent of a young athlete on an elite track in his sport, I wanted to read this for some insight. This was very easy reading, and growing up a swimmer while Summer Sanders was swimming, I could relate to a lot of what she was reading. My husband and I were discussing some of our concerns with our current program and it helps to hear what other parents are doing.

Pretty good read. Little boring. A lot of great information for parents of athletes and how to go through the journey.

Book was received in perfect condition, I read a few chapters before giving to my 15 yo granddaughter for Christmas. She is a miracle child with a 2 chamber heart and I wanted her to be inspired and I know this is the book that is perfect for her. She was thrilled to receive it. It arrived on time for our Christmas even with all the Snow delays. It was packaged beautifully and Seller went to great care to make sure package woud not be damaged in transit. Will definitely buy from Seller again.
Thanks for a great holiday season!

I liked this book and at the least it gave me perspective in the sense of awareness. It made me more aware of how I handle my daughter and her matches. I did think it was more appropriate for individual sports rather than team sports. But, Summer was a swimmer so that makes sense. I wish a few of the references to parenting elite athletes were from the team sport perspective. Overall a good read for that parent who is teetering on the edge of being behind the wheel of their child's sport.
