    Fear of Meeting Others' Expectations and Pressure

    OSCAR: "I started my junior season of high school basketball. I haven’t been playing well. It feels like there’s too big of a wall in the way of me getting to where I want to be. My confidence is very low. I struggle with feeling like a letdown or that I’m disappointing people around me. I’ve always been told how good I can be, but I’m not really meeting those expectations, nowhere close to meeting them. Anything you could do to help me?"

    Helping Soccer Players Who Are Self-Critical

    In this sports psychology podcast, Dr. Cohn helps parents on how to address the self-critical mindset of their daughter when receiving feedback from her coach.
    Here is the question, Dr. Cohn answers in this episode: Sports Parent:
    EVAN: "My daughter is a 14-year-old soccer player with a lot of natural ability. But I think that she struggles with her mental game, particularly being too hard on herself, getting down after mistakes, and responding to a coach’s feedback. My question: is there anything that I can do to help her with her being so hard on herself or being criticized? I feel she is hardwired to be this way as her sister is not this way."
