Call Me Cate at Show My Face hosts Six Word Saturday. Want to play along? All that's necessary to participate is to describe your life (or something) in a phrase using just six words.
A coach should instruct, not insult.


  1. 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."

  2. 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.

  3. 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!

  4. so true!! same should be said of teachers as well!There is a difference between constructive criticism and out and out insults

  5. I absolutely agree with you. Teachers are supposed to teach.

  6. That doesn't sound good at all, no wonder you are upset.

  7. 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.
