An important read for coaches, teachers, school administrators, government education regulators and sports psychologists.

Anyone associated with sport can appreciate the positive life lessons in hard work and constructive minded coaching. However what happens when lines are crossed, and coaching masked as tough-minded is destructive, abusive? Dr. Fraser explores real life implications of lines crossed and institutional short-comings in addressing such problems. High profile NCAA cases have maybe elevated this conversation some but Dr. Fraser goes further, providing sad real example of how even much younger athletes still endure bad and harmful coaching experiences in high school or club sport levels. Systemically we must do more to protect kids.

Both of his children were among the twelve students who spoke to the Toronto Star.

About Jennifer Fraser PhD

I am an author and educator. My latest book Teaching Bullies tells the story of 14 students who came forward to report on the verbal, emotional and some physical abuse at the hands of their teachers. How they were treated by school administrators, lawyers, and educational authorities is cause for alarm. The story is grounded in psychological, psychiatric, neuroscientific and sports journalism. It is a call to action for all those who want to protect children from bullying especially when it's done by teachers and coaches.
