Hockey Mom Tip #13: Talking about body composition
Being a parent is hard. You want to do what is best for your child in every situation, but it is sometimes confusing to know what to do. Parents often follow what other parents are saying and doing in hopes that they find the right approach. While this tactic can work in some situations, tracking and working on body composition isn’t one of them. Make sure that you seek professional help if you want to optimize your child’s body composition. Comparing body compositions between kids is a bad idea. There is an ideal and realistic body composition for your child and it isn’t necessarily the same as another child on the team. It may not even be the same for two children in the same family! Hockey players come in all shapes and sizes, and there is no “one size fits all” when it comes to great hockey performance.
