"Do Hard Things" - Steve Magness

This quote was added by fleetnathan
In sport, the controlling, demanding style also fails. On the athletic fields, it's linked to lower grit and an increase in emotional exhaustion, burnout, and fear of failure. Even in terms of discipline, the area that you would think a demanding style would be successful, it falls short. In one study of over 1,200 parents, authoritarian parenting was linked to a much higher rate of child misbehavior. It even fails in places where it seems a natural fit: the military.
