Through this talk Camilla will provide a critical review of parenting in sport. Specifically, she will start by providing a brief overview of the history of research considering parental involvement in sport. She will discuss children’s perceptions and preferences for parental involvement before moving on to examining parents’ experiences of supporting young athletes. Consideration of the range of factors that may influence parents’ involvement in sport as well as potential solutions to optimise parental involvement will then be provided. Finally, the presentation will conclude by highlighting specific considerations for working with parents, as well as recommendations to enhance our knowledge in this area.
