Welcome to Season 9, Episode 12, of the ParentingAces Podcast.

Boy, is this a strange time for all of us. We are sheltering at home, with our kids, trying to figure out this New Normal. 

Rather than release a brand new episode this week, I thought I would go back to our Archives and re-release a conversation I had with David Benzel, creator of Growing Champions for Life, from August 2012.

In this episode, David and I discuss what it means to be an effective Tennis Parent and the common pitfalls we all face as we try to do what's best and right for our child(ren). 

Since we're all at home anyway, why not use this time to practice some of the techniques David offers up to do better, to be better?

Please do visit David's website at and be sure to get on his email list so you're alerted to upcoming webinars and other events. David is a true gem of a human and has a lot of wisdom to share!

As always, a big thank you to Morgan Stone, aka STØNE, for our NEW intro and outro music this season. You can find more of his music at If you're interested in House Music, please be sure to check out his social media channels on FacebookTwitterInstagram

If you're so inclined, please share this – and all our episodes! – with your tennis community. You can subscribe to the podcast on iTunes or via the ParentingAces website. If you haven't already, be sure to become a Member of ParentingAces – we have 4 options for you – by clicking here.
