Dr. Cohn gives mental game tips on how to improve composure in tennis.

COHN: “We typically recommend to parents that you can start the mental coaching around age 8, which would probably be the minimum. Even at that age you want to start off with very simple ideas. We created a children’s book series called The Confident Sports Kid children book series. They are simple lessons that you can go over with your young athlete to help them deal with things like perfectionism, teamwork, confidence, and letting go of mistakes.”
“There are some things that you can do at this age now to help them later in life. It comes form the sports parenting side and the coaching side. In other words, we see a lot of perfectionists today in tennis and perfectionism has good and bad characteristics or traits to it. More so the bad traits is what is holding them back.”
