You see, managing what is going on in a player's mind is enormous.
But there's two ways a player's emotions are influenced.
The first is through his own thoughts, which we've touched on already.
And the second is by what he is told.
Mom and Dad, if you want your son to play like a Lovejoy, YOU have to make some adjustments as well.
And this isn't a "Oh hey say nice things to your kid because this is just a game and it's the right thing to do."
There's a little bit of that involved, but this is more of "This is what is effective in getting your child to perform at his best."
