Updated: August 3, 2020
Kristine Keane, PsyD., clinical and sports neuropsychologist and clinical director at Hackensack Meridian Health’s Neuroscience Concussion Program recently co-authored a book titled Be All In: Raising Kids for Success in Sports and Life, with two-time U.S. Women’s Soccer World Cup Champion, Christie Pearce Rampone.
The book offers a new way of parenting young athletes by providing strategies that help alleviate the pressures and anxieties common to families whose children play sports and discusses how parents can help their children fully draw on the benefits of sports, like building focus, teamwork, self-confidence and good health.
“Teaching a positive, solution-seeking attitude can help children learn how to get the most out of wins and losses that will carry into adulthood. Understanding both the psychology and physiology after a game can propagate healthy conversations about emotions associated with performance.”Kristine Keane, PsyD
Be All In: Raising Kids for Success in Sports and Life is scheduled for release on August 18, 2020, published by Grand Central Publishing.
