    Andddddd that's my dad. He coached our pop-warner/rec teams and bought himself a book to learn how to french braid my hair and my mom actually wasn't overly involved. She did make our team bows and knew everyone, but she spent no extra time there.

    Granted, when I was on the high school team he was no longer a coach and just showed up when I told him to so that dynamic shifted, but cheer dads are my favorite.

    Oh I have seen my fair share of crazy cheer dad's---I have also witnessed some pretty intense running dad's too. It takes a lot to scare me, but recently, a few have done just that.

    I think parents need to realize that this is their children's sport not theirs. And I firmly agree that in order to have the least dramatic season ever---you pair up with a few non-dramatic ones or you pair up with no one.

    I schedule tutoring during CP’s practice. It makes my life so much easier to only have to deal with an over dramatic teen cheerleader (and the occasional other kid who is in my car), not their moms, too.

    And making some extra money during that time is nice, too.

    Of course, I’m the kind of mom who makes sure my kid has what she needs, brings the occasional treat for the team, and cheers during competitions, but largely stays out of the rest of it. CP is nuggeted for tumbling, I commiserate, but I don’t complain to the coach-that’s his job (and if CP is unhappy with the coach, well, she’ll havr a chance to make up her mind before she decides if she wants to evaluate or not again). CP has a beef with another kid, honestly, I listen, and let her work it out-usually by the next day, they’re friends again.

    Having said that, I spend most of my time working with gifted kids/teens. And their parents. If you think Cheer can be intense, try spending some time with the math team....

    Agreed, but those nuts get psycho in those sports. They’re typically cheer-stupid and know it. I’m speaking on average, there will always be an outlier here of there.

    I will never understand creating or being apart of drama in anything my kid does. Before she competes I always say to her her "I love you, have fun, be fierce, love your team, love yourself and kick some booty." After she competes I give her a big hug and tell her regardless of how the team did that "asses were kicked". It's just our silly little thing. I could never imagine getting into it with another parent from her team or doing anything that would cause drama, cheer is her thing not mine. Parents confuse and irritate me like how do you cause drama on a comp day who has time for any of that.

    LOL, no. What was THAT? We were at a different comp and it happened outside the comp at the hotel, not at the actual comp.

    Someone explain to me why skinny blonde b**** wasn’t taken out of there in handcuffs. She’s obviously intoxicated, making an booty of herself and committed battery.

    My dad, too! He was on our pop warner board, then coached cheer teams, then did the choreography and music and end of year videos. When I moved to all stars, he coached, went to conferences, got his judging and coaching certificates, was on the parent team, etc. He was severely mistreated by the owner of our first gym and decided to "retire". But he came in clutch when he came to comps as a spectator and would give us the run down of how we stacked up against the rest of the division that went before us that we didn't get to see.

    I feel blessed af.

    CJA has an incredible parents section though. Those moms and dads are LOUD.
