cannot believe that I just had a call from a parent complaining that she had left her 11 year old son at Coleman Park and now she didn't know where he was. I sent text messages to all coaches this morning at 8 o clock saying the park was closed and then we packed up and left. So why do parents who can see there is no-one there then leave an 11 year old kid at a park where no one else is and then complain that we weren't there to look after him. What planet is she on to leave a child by themselves when they can see no-one else is there
sorry end of rant but some people make you wonder

Not sure I'd go that far but understand where you are coming from. This year we have had to deal with far more inconsiderate, rude and demanding people than in previous years. I was sworn at last week. It wears you down. I'm trying to put those people into the background and focus on all the other great people in my club (but it is hard sometimes). Also for me its been good to remember some of the nice people I've met along the way in soccer, like when your son goes to play at another club for a while and you make some great friends . Thats what makes it worthwhile. Although, a good rant with people like us who fully understand can also be helpful!
Unfortunately, some parents regard what we provide as somewhat of a babysitting service, however, thankfully, these parents are the vast minority.
Was the kid found?
I was going to say the same thing. Babysitting service is what they think coaches are these days. With the amount of communication we have these days i thought some would check prior to leaving their child at a vacant football ground!!

Didnt see you chastisting other players on the 2011 Premier thread when Ruining was unreasonably attacked. Actually when Stan came out with constrcutive comment which Ruining was seeking you then chastisted Stan.
Hmmmmm...how about we look at those forum rules again.
Presume you are speaking to Tim & OKO and the others here. Seems they are the ones playing the man. Ruining as a newcomer to the forum, seems to be being subject to the traditional forum rituals, you know like new recruits to the Fire Services or Army.
