At first, I thought this said "couch".You're right, of course, about coaches.If I hadda write six words about couches:"A couch should support, not absorb."
This is certainly true. I think altogether too many coaches and gym teachers have traumatized young people into hating sports.I would go further to say that people should never be bullied into weight loss. If a heavy person is participating in exercise or sports, let them do it without haranguing them to achieve a certain body type.
Good call! Also good point, Adam. I'd extend that to be that gym class should actually make you sweaty, though. I was SO frustrated in our (gender segregated) gym class in HS that we never actually exercised. It was easy b/c, you know, we were girls. Bah.Happy 6WS!
so true!! same should be said of teachers as well!There is a difference between constructive criticism and out and out insults
I absolutely agree with you. Teachers are supposed to teach.
That doesn't sound good at all, no wonder you are upset.
I'm sorry to hear that, it is sad when a person has an opportunity to lift the light and talent of a young person and all they do is bring you down.
