Why does my kid have to like soccer? Why can’t it be an indoor sport?
Yes, I know, soccer can be played indoors too but the reality is that more often than not it is played outdoors, where it rains, a lot.
As a parent, and I don’t care how much you love your kids, it totally sucks to sit/stand/wait on the sidelines while it is pouring down rain. What’s worse, it is also cold (as in under 40 degrees) and the wind is blowing. Doesn’t matter if you have an umbrella or not, you’re getting wet. Period. Yeah, so cold sideways rain is just fun…never.
Find a different sport, kid, preferably one that involves warmth and is dry.
