A regular ritual in this country and many others is attending organized youth sports events. It has become an obsession for many. In Carrying Lawn Chairs, I explore the motivations of the parents and other adults who attend the games in droves and often take it so seriously. What's this obsession all about, and why are so many parents so insistent on getting their kids started in youth sports and other activities at often a very young age? It is my contention that putting young kids into organized sports is, at the very least, pointless. My ideas come from observations made from years of being involved in organized youth sports as a player, coach, league organizer, umpire, official scorer, and a regular attendee at organized youth sports events. I don't consider this a how-to book. I am not a parental guru. I look at the book as a collaboration with parents where they can take my observations and then evaluate the direction they are taking their children. I come at it from the perspective that most parents already know a lot and want what is best for their kids. Some of my observations may seem harsh and some will be controversial in this day and age. But parents and others are of course free to do what they want with my observations, including ignoring them. In Part II of the book, I reflect on observations made beyond the world of organized youth sports involving the parental mindset and young people in the world today.
