One thing I noticed is that once you volunteer for a kids program in any capacity, you get sucked in. Too few parents get involved at all, so the ones who do volunteer wind up doing everything. ______________________________Heck I got caught by my neighbor playing basketball down at the park quite a few years ago. I ended up coaching basketball for a decade before I had a kid!On the one hand it is a shame so few parents are involved. On the other hand the parents who do it solely out of obligation, often ruin it so bad for the kids IMO, that it is a crying shame.
