PITTSBURGH (NewsRadio 1020 KDKA) — Parents who are out of control are troubling. Our intentions tend to be positive, however many of us are not at our best at children's sports events.

We yell out tips to our kids during games, try to instruct coaches, scream at the official the entire game as if we know the rules better.

KDKA Radio's Marty Griffin asked his listeners "Do you ever yell at your kids if they're playing sports or do you wait until after the game?" Griffin noticed his son Vincent standing around with his hands on his hip during a soccer game while everyone else was running around.

Do you yell at your kids during the game or are we unknowingly putting too much pressure on our children to perform?

Listen to Griffin discuss how he handled the situation with son, Vincent.
