My son Alfie turned three at the end of lockdown so after spending his whole life surrounded by tennis talk it was time for him to have a go.
We had a chat with him beforehand about having coach Andy and he was as excited as he could be. I had numerous concerns about him asking for a cuddle in the middle of my demonstration or refusing to stay on his spot (no idea where he gets his stubbornness from) but luckily he was amazing. I tried to act cool, get on with my coaching and do my job but all I can say is it was very lucky I was wearing sunglasses.
Before having children it is really difficult to understand the emotions in kids starting new activities. Real-life experience is helping me shape how we approach a multitude of different parts of our approach but also understand the challenges every parent faces.
